Be Authentic Burlap Panel

 Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a mini burlap panel, that was fun and easy to do!  I think this would make the cutest addition to a small wall collage or even a gift basket!
 For the background I smeared some Transparent Gloss Texture Paste on to the burlap panel.  While the paste is still wet, I generously sprinkled Clear Rock Candy Distress Dry Glitter onto surface, then shook off excess.
 I set aside the burlap panel to air dry.
 It's hard to see in the photo, but you get a great sparkle from the Distress Glitter yet it's transparent that you can still see that burlap panel.
 I colored the watercolor cardstock with Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Spray Stain and a little water.  Then dried with a heat tool.
 I die cut the watercolor cardstock with the lattice die from the Mixed-Media Thinlit set.
 Then I trimmed it down to fit nicely on top of the burlap panel.
 I diecut one of the butterflies from the butterfly duo die with watercolor cardstock.  Then I colored with Mustard Seed and just a little Spiced Marmalade Distress Spray Stain, then dried with a heat tool.  I intensified the color slightly in center of butterfly with Mustard Seed Distress Ink and a blending tool.
 I ran the butterfly through the vagabond using the Butterfly Duo Texture Fade that accompanied the die. (ignore the blue butterfly, it was originally blue not yellow)
 I highlighted wings with Spiced Marmalade.  Then did some outer shading with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool.  I attached the diecut lattice to the burlap panel with foam squares. Then I attached the butterfly to the lattice with foam squares as well.  Then finished off with one of the black Small Talk stickers and a Special Delivery Remnant Rub.  Quick and super easy :)
