I have never posted on this board before but after seeing this post I was inspired to have a go myself. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284723.0



It is A4 card and a punch I borrowed from my mum's collection.

I still need a frame for it and I have lots more butterflies cut out to make some more  Smiley  I'm not sure if it would look better on black card (my mum didn't have any left that I could pinch) I might try that next.

Any comments appreciated.

awww, this looks adorable!!!  Kiss

The thing with black card background is that it looks very sexy BUT, at night should be in a well lit place as then the butterflies aren't really that visible. But I think since your punches are a little bigger than mine were so it'll be alright. What punch did you use?

I like it on the white card because it makes it look as if the butterflies are coming through from behind, instead of just stuck to the front.  Sort of an emergence thing...

The punch is a lot bigger I think. I'm not sure what brand it is, I will ask my mum as I borrowed it from her.

I have a few different coloured card backgrounds to try now, I can see this being very addictive!  Grin

what an amazing group of butterflies. Are you framing them? They are definitely individual. Almost like snowflakes, no 2 alike. Keep up the great work. You really have patience.
