A Host of Monochrome Butterflies

Hi again, Christine Saunders here with this month's theme - "Monochrome" .

"Monochrome" means "black and white" or "one colour" so Iv'e made lots of Butterflies with the lovely Pearlescent Embossing Powders using only one colour on each.  These powders look lovely on black or dark coloured cardstock and can look different depending on which colour you choose for your background. 

I first stamped each Butterfly surround with the "Build a Butterfly" stamp set using one colour taken from the Pearlescent Embossing powders range. I then added the inside to each of the butterflies using the same colour that I'd used for each surround. 
I added a flower stamen folded in half as antennae for each butterfly and stuck this to the back of the butterfly with double sided foam pads.

The body of each Butterfly was made using seed beads. Drop some PVA Glue (it should dry crear) or Glossy Accents onto the body section and drop seed beads into the glue to create the body.  I used seed beads which were the same colour as the Butterfly to keep the monochrome theme.

These Butterflies could be used for Scrapbooking, Card-Making, as a hanging mobile, on hair slides or kirby grips for children, to decorate childrens' rooms, on canvasses to add dimension, on picture frames - the list goes on and on.

Products used in this project were:
