It's week 2 of my Butterfly Challenge #19
the theme is to piece your butterflies.
Here is a card I have made
to give you some inspiration.
This time I have used a die cut butterfly.
This one is a Signature Die by Joanna Sheen
called 'Fairy Fly 1'
I chose this die as it is a very open cut filigree design.
I cut 4 layers out in fairly thick card stock
and matted together with pva glue.
I painted using Imagination Crafts
Silkies in 'Denim Lace'
which gives a lovely sheen to the butterfly.
I then die cut a further 3 butterflies using up
some coordinating papers that were in my snippets pile
and adhered them to the back of the butterfly in the
Doing it this way gives a nice 3D effect.
I used a scallop blank card and the die cut circles
were already in my snippets pile
Sentiment is an Anita's peel off .
Background paper is called 'Up in the Air'
and was a freebie in Making cards July 2013
I adhered the circles using 3D pads for dimension.
Now of course the inevitable happened
Loads more of those pesky snippets!
But do you see what I see?
Well how about a flower
some Cutlass swords
or maye even more Reindeer antlers
or how about some Hotlips
and designer Shoes.
After all a girl can never have enough shoes.
Oh yes be afraid those snippets are out there as we speak!!
