Fluttering By With a Birthday Hi!

It has been awhile since I posted any of my crafting creations.  I have been dabbling in many different painting and mixed media creations, including rediscovering Peerless watercolor papers.  I painted the butterflies on quarter sheets of watercolor paper and used shades of yellow, orange and some pinks to create the background.  After using a heat gun to speed up the process of drying, I die cut several medium sized butterflies using an older Sizzex die and the smaller butterflies I used a punch from Martha Stewart.  One card I created a tiny tag and the other one I added a sentiment from a Penny Black word set I had. I also added some specks from the watercolor paints I used to add interest to the background paper.  A folded and popped up the wings and glued them to the paper, folded up the wings and added some glitter glue for an accent.  You can see from the final pic how lovely they came out.  In the mail they went today for my dear June Bday friends.
