This is one of those times that I started with the flair. I knew they matched these pictures perfectly, so I grabbed them and printed off my photos.
You may recognize that gorgeous Flutterby cut file! If you remember, I had cut them too small the first time, but I saved them because I knew I would use them. There were sitting there on my desk so I just had to use them!
I actually started by creating a background paper using several Shimmerz Vibez mists that matched my flair. Then I used that background paper to cut butterfly shapes to go behind the cut file. Finally, I stitched with gold thread down the center. I absolutely love how these butterflies turned out! Here are the paints I used:
The flair I used are from this fair set:
I made a video of my process if that suits your fancy!
Don't forget, if you are purchasing any Shimmerz products, put my name (orange gearle) in the comments and you will get a little something extra in your order!
Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!
