Watch for it Wednesday #57


Butterflies! One of springs wonders and so popular right now in paper crafting.
I decided to start making up butterflies with all kinds of colors, textures and embellishments.
Here are just a few of the possibilities:
I used Pearl lustre cardstock, Diamond Stickles and Kaiser pearls for this beauty.

I used silver metallic cardstock, Silver Stickles and gems from Hero Arts on this one.
Glossy Accents adds texture and shine.

Doodlebug fine and chunky glitters for this one.

I used Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy for this cool effect and some Kaiser gems.

The ideas are truly endless!

Don't forget Copics, Distress inks, Coordinations cardstock sanded to show the inner core,
patterened papers etc.

Why spend all the money buying pre-made embellishments when you can make your own.
If I haven't convinced you to buy the CottageCutz butterflies than I don't know what will!
I love this die!
Here is a list of things I did with the butterflies above:

Glossy Accents, Distress Crackle Paint, Distress Ink, Gems, Pearls, Stickles, Glitter, Smooch Spritz, Copics, metallic cardstock, Coordinations cardstock (sanded), all patterned paper, all cardstock, all solid, all one color, two tone, airy (without the background and pieces punched out), top layer only, background solid only, pearl lustre cardstock, solid w/patterned paper, Swiss dots cardstock.
