Altering a few items in the July ScrapThat! kit!

Hi everyone!  I loved this months kit, but it just wouldn't be me if I didn't alter some things just a bit!  

I wanted to make the felt a little less vibrant so I used a technique I do quite often.

you will need a zip tight baggie
and your felt

 spray some mist in the bag....
add your felt

 squish it around until you have used up all the mist
you may wish to add more mist to make the felt darker

 lay your felt out to dry!

I did the same technique using a green mist with the tulle!

 To alter the flowers just a bit I used a makeup sponge and my brown ink pad and inked the edges of the flower to give it a more distressed look!

 Then I took the green smooch and added a bit more drama to the edges!


I also sprayed the leaves with a bit of gold mist!

and using a piece of paper I sprayed the end of the butterflies wings

 I didn't want the pearls quite so white for the layout I was working on so...
I used the smooch on them.
I didn't want them dark either, so before the smooch was dry I rubbed a bit off using a paper towel

 and this is what I got!

and here is the finished layout!
