Monarch Butterfly wall hanging

Hello All!

Today I am sharing a wall hanging that I made for my craft room.  I wanted something bright, bold and colorful to hang on the white storage unit in the room.  The wall hanging pops against the white!

The wall hanging is entered into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge this fortnight: embossing.  My hoarded item for this project is my sweet Olde Curiosity Shoppe paper from Graphic 45.  Ugh...I wish I had two pads of this paper!
The butterfly was embossed and die cut using Sizzix's new butterfly set Layered Butterfly (659578).  Tim Holtz stain in Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw and Black Soot was applied.  It was spritzed using gold glitter spray.
A wood frame (from Michaels) was colored using Tim Holtz stain (Tarnished Brass), dried, and then white crackle applied.  The cracks are difficult to see in the photos but are shiny brass.
The base was die cut using two of the circles from Spellbinders Grand set: Stately Circles.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my wall hanging.  I hope you like it!
