Lasting Memories Challenge #40 "Paper Piecing"
So I took these pictures in the front yard of the two of them playing. It's very rare that I scrap my dog and I am glad I had these to work with.
butterflies I cut using the Gypsy Wanderings file and a tutorial Penny Duncan showed. First I cut three of them out of cardstock and then I cut three out of the cart clear packaging. I love recycling items and this was so awesome. I used my deepcut blade and mulitcut it 3 times. I probably could have done 4 or 5 as I did have to use my exacto knife a couple of times for minor cuts. I then used my alcohol inks in Stream, Eggplant and Wild Plum and inked the clear packaging. This was a really cool affect. I used my Martha Stewart Score board and scored along the body on each side so that the wings popped up a bit. I colored my rhinestones with my Bic markers to match and then used my glue dots to adhere them to the body of the butterflies. I then glued the clear bodies to the paper cuts and viola...flying butterflies. I just love how much dimension they add to the page.
