More Butterflies.

Iv'e used up more from the batch of butterflies that I made a while back. Had it in my mind to use bottle caps to show case them off  so made this card. The backing paper is a freebie from a magazine, the plain blue cardstock and ribbon are snippets  that I have used up.

The bottle caps were painted with blue acrylic paint to compliment the backing paper and then when dry buffed with Inka Gold (another of my must haves) to match the gold swirls. The sentiment was comptuer generated and then cut out using a nestie.

Closeups showing the bottle caps and some of the butterflies.

Super glossy butterflies - (I must have missed the post where you made them) and the bottle tops are perfect to hold them just so. I'm trying to work out your tipple from just looking at them but I don't think they're yours after all - Are they from the Doc's White Lightening bottles? Love the little strip of lace too, Mrs. A. Hugs, Lesley

These bottle caps are perfect frames for these sweet little butterflies! And the swirls in the background give the impression of movement like they've just flown in! Fantastic card!
