January 18, 2012

I've been wanting to try this butterfly with the Blossom punch since seeing it in the mini. I paired it up with the Color Challenge from The Paper Players. These antennae happened by accident. I layered the two butterflies and the Coral one was a bit bigger so I started to trim just that little area. The "tip" of the trim did not quite meet, so those tiny strips stayed on and I noticed they looked like antennae! Perfect. :)

Stamp Set: Mixed Bunch
Ink: VersaMark, Calypso Coral (sponge dauber to center of butterfly)
Paper: Blushing Bride, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral
Tools: Big Shot, Texturz Plates Backgrounds 1, Blossom punch, White EP, heat tool, sponge dauber
Embellishments: Pear Pizzazz pleated ribbon, Basic Pearls

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!


  1. The butterfly is beautiful embossed in white and I love how you gave it a touch of color in the center! Thank you for playing along with us at The Paper Players!

  2. Ellen, I have wanted to try this technique and I love all of the fun detail you added to the butterfly. The shading is so pretty against the textured background. Thanks so much for joining us at the Paper Players! :)
