I wanted to make some patriotic butterflies, so I stamped the butterfly from Sparkly Dreams two times in archival black and then colored with copics and a white gel pen. I cut these out with the Butterfly Dreams die set and then layered them onto black die cuts for the antennae and accented with some black pearls.
All the layers of paper are sponged with antique linen and then vintage photo, and I stamped the dream big sentiment in night of navy ink and cut with a stitched circle die cut. I wrapped some linen thread around my papers and then layered everything together.
That's all from me today. I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
