Butterfly post

I have combined 2 challenges on this piece. One from DCM to use hand cut items, and the other from 4 x 4 Friday to use faux postage.

I have coloured the background, and then applied gesso. I have been meaning to play with this more extensively for a while now. Great fun! I forgot to put on my glasses when I cut the postage stamp out last night, and then found it really hard to focus when I had to drive to collect my daughter from a music rehearsal!! Will I ever learn!
