There a fabulous challenge on Secret Crafter, Flights of Fancy anything with wings on your project. Perfect excuse to make butterflies but rather than one large one I wanted to make smaller ones.
So I google butterfly outline and found this image which I saved picture and inserted it Word and resized each butterfly so they were half a centimeter difference starting at 5cm.
Cut them out don't worry about the antennas I use some flower stamens or you could use wire and once cut you've a template for various sizes.
The Butterflies I've used are the first three from the picture below. The body is the largest butterfly you're using, just marking the top and bottom and freehand join the marks with a slight oval curve. Looking at the butterflies now I would probably only use two because its such a small card.
I used My Minds Eys Asparagus papers with a Sarah Kay image, the lace I brought for Hobbycraft.
Here's a pic of the butterflies before I cut them out for the templates.
I'm slowly catching up heres a great award from my friend Fern who has just got a cuttlebug, can't wait to see what she creates with it.
Also the lovely Mary from over the pond sent me it too, Thanks Mary.
