Backstage close-ups & details

Here's a few close-ups and details of my "Backstage" lo.  I first backed the bg paper on some cardboard and then used my new Tim Holtz Mini Stapler which I highly recommend, very groovy tool!!!  The circular cardboard I misted with some Tattered Angels (Tiger Lily & Pearl) and then painted lightly with some Americana Acrylic Paint (Butter) that you can get at Michael's and some Craft Smart Acrylic Paint (Apple Tart) and smeared with a cloth to meld together.  I then added some ColorBox "Peony" to add some pink in with the paints.  I had a small envelope which  I masked with Tim Holtz's small mask with the above-mentioned Peony ink and some archival Sepia around the edges.  I then layered all the papers and added the Prima Decorative Border (Flowered Tendrils Grape) on the side.  The metal flowers are from Prima & Graphic 45.  Love using metal!!!  Hope you enjoy and try painting cardboard sometime, it's too fun!!
