Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I'm posting today with my Denami teammates for the stamp spotlight of the week, this gorgeous Large Butterfly...
Boy would I love to see real butterflies right now...we've received nearly 2 feet of snow in the past 48 hours in a freak snowstorm and I miss the green grass!
My poor tulips are NOT happy, LOL. Look at them poking out from all that white stuff!
After paper piecing my butterfly using the pretty tropical papers from this variety pack, I stamped it again on vellum and heat embossed it with silver e.p., then I cut out just the inside of the wings and adhered them on top of the patterned paper. I also paper pieced the body and head separately for even more dimension.
The large dot swirls were stamped on the white to show a fluttery-type movement of the butterfly, and the sentiment finished it off! I couldn't resit adding just a few of the black rhinestones to balance things, and a tiny black twine bow. *smile*
Denami Products used:
