Thinking of You Butterfly

I’ve certainly been on a butterfly kick. Making them in any color you want can be addicting AND fun!

Using sponge daubers, I swirled color onto my Whisper White cardstock using  Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  I wasn’t deliberately making circles and was surprised with what I created!

Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight

Once the paper dried, I cut out a butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits.  I LOVE how the butterfly turned out!  Imagine all the possible beautiful color combinations!  When using this die, I recommend adding a piece of waxed paper between the paper and the thinlit.  This helps all the tiny pieces come out.  Sometimes I also run the “sandwich” through my Big Shot twice just to be sure that it is completely cut out.

I hope you’ll give this a try and if you do, I’d love to see what you’ve created!
