This is a simple 5x7 card project! I used the circle dies and cut a out the center. I used the new Fancy Fritillary Dies and mounted the die cuts to the inside of the card. The wings lift up through the card. A bit of gold bling finished that off nicely. I worked on the foliage next. I added green skeletonized leaves as a base and colored white card stock with the alcohol markers. I placed my flowers and foliage. It needed a lttle something so I dabbed on some glitter. Next came the small butterflies and the bee. They turned out so well that they blend right with the paper. I embossed three butterflies and colored with water based markers. I stamped one bee and colored it yellow. I placed it in the top of the red flowers and his top wing is bent up so he really looks like he is in flight. So simple and easy!!!
|Here you can see the butterflies and bee wings are truly 3D|
