I hope Barb doesn't grow tired of receiving butterfly artwork......as I enjoy the butterfly theme so very much. This is a hard plastic material that I purchased from a stamp store already cut into the butterfly shape. Using a heat tool allows you to manipulate the shape of the butterfly. After coloring the one side with alcohol inks, I then collaged a dictionary page with the word butterfly.
I added a very lightweight mulberry paper to the backside of the butterfly and then misted it with a light wash of yellow which added to the transparency of the paper. You can see some of the dictionary paper behind it....love that!
