Birthday Butterlies


I had some pieces of  paper left after the class I took making these patchwork butterflies, so I made another set, again painting them with iridescent medium to give a gorgeous shimmer.

This time I mounted them on a cream card-stock I had embossed with the fantastic flowers folder, then the patchwork frame and dark pink background

The edges of the butterflies were sponged with Worn Lipstick D.I., and added a line of rhinestones on the body, and some individual ones randomly on the background of the card

The sentiment, stamped in Worn lipstick, had been clear embossed before the card was embossed.
The final detail was a three layered flower, held together with a clear gemstone topped brad.

  6. Total beauty!!!! LOVE those gorgeous butterflies and what a creative way of making them too.

  7. Since I'm a 'recovered quilter', I enjoy sewing & quilting things. Was intrigued at the idea of patchwork butterflies, and these are beautiful. The edge distressing with the DI enhanced the patterns in the wings so very nicely. This is just a lovely card. TFS & Big Hugs.
