Pastel Butterfly
by Penny Ward

Big-Butterfly

 

Hello. hello Memory Box friends. Spring is in the air and that means flowers blooming, bees buzzing and butterflies flitting here and there. Today for you I have a watercolor and Metallics mash-up. Nothing better than watercolored butterflies !!!

 

Start with a White cardstock base and adhere a Black cardstock panel on top.

Die cut Big Butterfly Wing from watercolor paper. I used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, but use whatever you have to achieve pretty pastel colors.

 

Stamp and heat emboss sentiment from Spring Lilacs set.

Die cut Honeycomb Stitched Circle Frame from White cardstock and Metallic Gold cardstock. Layer slightly off center.

Adhere Honeycomb Frame over sentiment, then adhere Big Butterfly on top. For the Butterfly body, I colored it with Delicata Golden Glitz reinker.

 

Happy Crafting my friends,
