Who doesn't love a butterfly. They are lighter than air and flutter around all day long looking for zinnias and butterfly bushes to feed on.
I was just fooling around and made these butterflies to use for scrapbooking or for a card at a later date.
Every thing was cut from the Cricut. The circles are cut at 3 inches. The seal and the butterfly are from the Cake Basic Cartridge. (You have to Hide Select the inner circle) I used Tim Holtz distress ink around the circle. The paper is some music paper (which I thought I would never use) The butterflies are graduated and I did various things to them. Just kinda experimenting. Using the creative part of my brain.
Here I used a swirly stamp and embossed with white.
On this butterfly I used Shimmerz in the paint pot and a paint brush to paint around the edge and used distress ink to bring out the shimmer.
Then....................I made teensy tiny 1 inch ones. This circle is from Accent Essentials and I still used the same butterfly. Instead of using Shimmerz I used the Sakura Clear Star Pen. I LOVE this pen I use it all the time. I LOVE the glitz it gives off.
I did make a .cut file for this and I will share as usual you can go HERE to download.
