Butterfly Gift Bag

This little gift bag diecut was fun to decorate. I used one of my oldest and most loved stencils to make the background.... Doesn't it look old and loved?
I used gesso on the diecut and then stenciled clouds using Adirondack and Brillance inks. The inks seemed to blend better on the gesso surface. Once dry, I went back over the clouds with watered-down white acrylic paint just to soften the colors. The diecut is by Debbie's DieCuts, the image is by Artistic Outpost and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart product.
