Sweet Lilac flowers - buttons and lace

.This is a canvas I made using flowers and lace from Sweet Lilac flowers.

I started by making a flower using the lace and then I worked everything around this piece, which I coloured lightly with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.

I coloured the canvas with PanPastels and layered different flowers together, added the picture, buttons, butterfly and swirls and a strip of lace.

I felt that there were a couple of spaces which needed something so I used a stencil and embossing paste to add a butterfly and swirl pattern which I then covered with glamour dust.

This piece I've decided to enter into the Sweet Lilac Challenge.
