Beautiful Butterflies Frame project
So here it is! My weekend in Madison project that I wanted to share with you tonight. First, I started with a kit that I made for 50 people there. Its easy, just a pretty frame from Dollar Tree ( 6 for a dollar), and stamped in black NOIR ink ( my personal fave for just about everything) onto the Angelee patterned paper. I stamped the butterfly twice as you will cut out each separately as shown in the third photo. It doesn't take but a minute for the black NOIR to dry. Then cut carefully around the wings. I accidentley cut through one of them but it didn't really matter as that first layer is hidden pretty well. Casualty for the poor butterfly:) I stamped the butterfly in black NOIR onto the white piece as well before placing it into the frame, where I then stamped the saying. I traced the antenna with a glitter pen for a bit of sparkle and also dotted both i's with it. Now, I used a glue dot to add the first layer butterfly to the white piece in the frame. The SECOND only I added half a pop-dot to each side of the wings, which was just enough to have it pop out. I lifted the wings a bit to add dimension, with my fingers. And finally? I colored in just the head and body of the butterfly with the Gelly Glaze black pen. SO many words, but its a great and easy AND affordable project for all. I saw these frames at Becky Linds Gala the weekend before where she had her TRASHY LADY demo. She is a hoot that girl!! LOVE YA BECKY!
