prettier butterflies

i got this piece of fabric as a free sample. i was not crazy about the rust and gold combo at all, but i really liked the shape of the butterflies. so i covered it with a wash of interference orange acrylic paint, which toned back the rust color and gives it a sparkly pearlescence. then i painted the outlines of the butterflies and added doodly designs to the wings.

much mo' bettah!
