Butterfly Wall Art

Had to go back and re-add this post.  My original post disappeared into Blogland...

This is the beginning of my quest to make home decor projects using SU! products.

The walls of my craft room are bare and I am going to use products from Stampin' Up! to liven them up. One of my favorite stamps is this Swallowtail Butterfly. It is in the 'Background Stamp' category and is large enough to use as 'Wall Art'. My project today is 3-fold: decorating one of my craft room walls, SUO Challenge #78 - Ribbons and Bows!, and TLC444 - Stamping on Designer Paper,

I stamped the butterfly using VersaMark ink on Modern Medley DSP; embossed with black embossing powder.  Colored wings with markers then cut wings using craft knife but left body intact so that wings could pop-up.  Matted using card stock and DSP.

All products are from Stampin' Up!
