Millefiori Recycling

I made some more atcs using the back of a lined pad that I found on my daughter's desk yesterday. As it was grey board, I painted it with 2 coats of gesso first and then used the Millefiori technique on it. As the resulting surface is a slightly different texture, the floral stamping has a slightly softer look.
The background card has been stamped with a border design in black ink and then embossed with the Cuttlebug Paisley folder. The butterfly was stamped and embossed, then painted with H20s.
These will also be up for swapping a bit later on.
