Flutterbies


Hello! This was inspired by a lovely card in Stampin' Success, but has turned out very differently! You start off by cutting a stencil from a butterfly framelit and sponging ink on a piece of speciality dsp. I decided to then use the inlaid die technique to return the butterflies to their spaces and add some glimmer paper bits to make a much shinier effect. I also added some white sequins for extra blinginess. I hope you like it! April x

My flutterbies are flying off to Cards in Envy - Beautiful Butterflies and Di and Parsnip at Pixie's Snippets Playground - the snippet of dotty speciality dsp was searched for high and low at Snippet Mountain! (mind you, I found lots of things I'd forgotten I had in the process!) :-)
