3-D Butterfly and Flower

3-D Butterfly and Flower

A pretty butterfly alights on a flower in search of nectar.

The butterfly wings were made using the W1 and W2 hearts from the 25 Hearts template by Teresa Welch available from Hot off the Press. The flower was embossed onto yellow card stock using the Majestic embossing board from the Glitter Girls. After embossing the flower I used a brayer to apply orange ink and then cut it out. I curled the petals and added pop-dots underneath for dimension. Only the butterfly body is glued to the card. I bent the wings up slightly so that they stand up off of the card.
