Some time ago, I found myself in a stamping butterfly marathon using these two stamps. I had seen a magazine cover on the Internet that was like a cloudburst of multi-colored butterflies swirling up into the sky and I was immediately captured by the beauty of all that color and wanted to create that image in a card.
So I set about to make my own butterflies to use for this card. Little did I know when I began that it would turn into another of my marathons and occupy days - with the end result being 80 competed and glittering butterflies! Eighty butterflies - 40 of the outline butterfly and 40 of the outline butterfly filled with dots - all waiting to be created into "a card".
The beginning. I chose the colored cardstock to make the rainbow colors I wanted and started to stamp some outline butterflies and some with the dot filler.
Added some glue and glitter. First the outline butterflies . . . . . .
and then the dotted butterflies.
Stack them all neatly in rows of color so I can see just what I have. Wow! That's quite a few butterflies, now that I look at them all lined up like that!
Wow! (again) I guess there are too many butterlies for "a card" (no kidding!) How many do I have anyway? Eighty - I have 80 butterflies! Wow!
The end result. It took four 'holding' cards - 20 on a card - to hold all the butterflies until I could decide what to do with them.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope that you have a good one!
