Our challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers today is stitching. Your stitching can be real, or faux.
I cut a pretty mat out of one of the latest Heartfelt Creations paper pads called Peacock Paisley and pricked the butterfly pattern into the side of it. I then stitched it with 6 strand variegated cotton from a matching colour family.
I matted it onto some toning paper from the same pad.
I added glitter in turquoise and blue to the swirly parts of the feathers, and little gems in the eyes of the feathers. I also used a sakura stardust pen to highlight the flower, and added an orange gem to that. A couple of gems finished off the butterfly and finall I added a small sentiment from the same pad.
