Beautiful Butterflies

Stampendous Stamps will be releasing new stamps very soon and all this week the Design Team will be unveiling many of the new images for you.

One of the new sets is a Jumbo Cling set called Butterfly Trio.

My daughter went to the fair this past summer and when she visited the butterfly tent she got this fun picture of her with butterflies on her head.  As soon as I saw the picture I knew I'd be creating some projects around it!

This first project is an altered frame.
This started as a cheap wood frame from Michael's.

I painted it with yellow Craft Smart acrylic paint and then stamped the butterflies and embossed them with Detail Black embossing powder.

They are colored in with memento markers.

I also made a scrapbook page using the same bright colors.
The sentiments on this page are from  SSC1159 Rose Thoughts.

Supplies for both projects:
CRS5044 Jumbo Cling Butterflies
 Detail Black Embossing powder
Memento Dye ink markers
Maple Frame from Michael's
Craft Smart yellow acrylic paint
Spellbinders dies
EK Success border punch 

You can see more sneak peek projects on these blogs:
