I LOVE BUTTERFLIES...
I made a bunch of these at once. Here's how:
Using the SU Papillon Potpourri and Versafine Black Onyx ink, I stamped several on watercolor paper. Then I colored them using a variety of Distress Inks and daubers. Then I used the coordinating SU punch and added tiny black gems for the body. For the antennae, I used colored wire, twisted it once to form a loop at the bottom and attached them to the back of the butterflies with glue dots. I then shaped the wire with my thumb nail.
For a final touch, I brushed each with a Wink of Stella pen. The dsp is from SU, and each butterfly is mounted close to its corresponding color.
