This page was inspired by the painted wood butterflies by Nancy Damiano; I only had 2 wood butterflies in my stash, so I added some feathers, and some paper butterflies (cut using a die from Papertrey Ink). I mostly used only items from the kit, and only added some puffy hearts and stars from Freckled Fawn (puffy stickers are my absolute fave!!), as well as some purple gems from an old Studio Calico kit (I think a card add on from Copper Mountain – Jan. 2014) to tie in the color of the flowers. I just love these colors, they feel so spring-y!
I stamped two phrases from the stamp in the kit on the paper butterflies (I stamped on wood veneer in the past and the ink feathered a bit, and didn’t want to risk it on the wood butterflies – although it probably would be fine with pigment ink, which sits on top of the surface). I used washi tape to mask the wood veneers before painting them with acrylic paint – lime light and mint hint. Then I used the small dots in the kit stamp to add the polka dots on the feathers. I like how that touch of black matches the paper strips I used at the top and bottom of the page.
I love how it turned out! Now if the weather would just cooperate and get spring started! 🙂
