With a Flourish...

The challenge that Mary laid out for us this week was great.  To use one or many of the Flourish  stamps that Serendipity carries.  I chose two stamps and their mirror images.  I'd been thinking for a week of what I would do with them, and then one day I laid them out on the desk and it hit me!  They would make a perfect butterfly!  So stuck them to a clear block like this and started to play!

I stamped it in several colors and decided on this burnt orange color then went to my stash and found some papers to match.  After I stamped the butterfly I simply cut around the shapes, and then added some inking that matched my papers.  Then I just cut out a butterfly body shape, and curled some orange wire into antennas.  And for the final touch I added some clear stickles to the body and edges of the wings.

 Serendipity Stamps used: Flourish (022D), Flourish Mirror (023D),
Parallel Flourish (034C), and Parallel Flourish Mirror (035C).
