I made an ornament that would make a great gift for a butterfly lover! Way back when i picked up some wood ornaments from the clearance rack. First i covered the wood ornament with a sheet of pattern paper from the 6 x 6 Butterfly Lullaby paper pad. I used some Dusty Concord Distress Ink to ink around the edges.

Next i used the 3D Oval Butterfly die and cut it from CC's Shimmering Card Stock White Pearl and from CC's Watercolor Card Stock. From the white pearl i carefully cut out the butterfly from the middle and set both aside.

From the watercolor oval, i cut the butterfly out and with CC's Spectrum Noir Aqua Orchid Marker i scribbled it on a clear block. I added some water then pressed the butterfly into it, i let it dry, then did it again with the left over ink.

While the butterfly was drying i did the same with with some of the tiny flowers you get when you use the die. Some of flowers i colored directly with the Orchid marker. When they were dry i added purple glitter to the White Pearl flowers and Liquid Pearl to the watercolor flowers.

Next i added the White Pearl oval to my ornament, then added the purple watercolor butterfly. Then i added the flowers, some directly to the ornament and some with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
