Fluttering By !
This is one of the new Magnolia stamps " Large Butterfly " available from Sir Stampalot I have paper pieced it with Bazzil, Kaisercraft and Bo Bunny papers, The scallop border punch is SU as is the ribbon, the little flowers are Prima and the leaf is from the sizzix Big Leaf sizzlets die.
I have stuck 3D foam pads right at the crease between the body of the butterfly and the wings in between each layer to give the wings some dimension and just finished off with a bit of diamond stickles and liquid pearls on the wings.
The large orange flowers are just some cheap flat ones I found and I pressed them into a versamark clear pad and enbossed with clear powder to give them a bit of rigidity and texture, it also enhanced the colour to a lovely bright orange.
I`d like to enter this into the Allsorts Challenge this week which is set by the lovely Fleur ( check out her fab blog in my side bar ) and the theme is " Inspired by Nature "
Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
