Creative Belli Challenge 97

Hey, it's time for a new challenge from Creative Belli!  The team challenge is to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!  This week's challenge is to use paint - don't buy new - use some you already have lying around -- I used some ivory acrylic paint - there was so little left I watered it down and it worked perfectly!

Here is my card:
I used paint on the purple bottom part of the card to make it very light purple,  I painted the Martha Steward doily because it was white and I wanted it to be cream. I also paint over the flowered dp by Melissa Francis because I wanted it to look faded.  The little violets are a vintage die cut -- I have hundreds of these, but like to just collect them! Ha- I need to start using them.  MS die cut has glitter all over it.  The butterfly has been colored with copic markers and pearls added.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink.

Here are the other team members and what they have created for your inspiration.

Here's how you can enter!

Joy your project is so pretty! Those pearls in the center of the butterfly are gorgeous! I love all of it! I have some of those MS Labels so. They are so pretty. I have never covered one of mine with glitter though, thanks for the inspiration.
