Using DecoArt heritage chalky paint and weathered wood I crackled the mdf plaque. Once dry I stencilled through the diamonds with white crackle paste. I mixed up chestnut brown primary elements, satin varnish and water to create some drips and as you can see it ran down the wood. I also gave it a spritz of orange media mister.

And the other end where I spritzed with the orange mister.
I rubbed some DecoArt metallic lustre in champagne ice over the textured areas.
And over the spritzed orange too.
I stamped some of the raindrops by Ryn designs in black stazon, flicked some white shimmer media spray onto the background and added pen marks with white posca pen at the top of the rain drops.

And here the white splatters of media spray paint. I need the iced espresso metallic lustre to make the diamonds darker!
I stamped a large butterfly in black stazon onto a piece of gelli print paper and cut it out. I added some white pen over the really dark blue.
I doubled up on the idea-ology spinners and a brad for the body.
I cracked open the burnt sienna and raw umber DecoArt media paints to paint the wooden letters after a coat of gesso. Gold and silver were added for a bit of contrast.
Wrapped copper and silver coloured wire around each letter.
Decided it needed more contrast so edged in carbon black media paint.
Finally I added the letters and the butterfly to the background and I've used some liquid glass to accentuate random rain drops and hi-lighted the top edges in champagne ice metallic lustre.
