A close up of Catherine's skirt. The first layer is a French hand written letter from the 1800's. The light pink dove, and the light green leaf were both cut from handmade paper from India. An X-Acto knife with #11 blade was used to cut out the bird cage for the skirt. A self-healing cutting board was used under the paper. Iris scissors were used to cut out the French letter, dove, and leaf.
