I have a quick post for you today before I get on with the 4th of July festivities and the rain stops!

I saw this great Mini challenge over at the Mod Squad and knew I wanted to play along.


However, I had a really tough time photographing these 3 x 3’s.  I think they came out rather cute!

Here is another shot…the sides of my unfinished light box was showing so I had to crop them in. LOL

I thought the sequins were a great idea for the body of the butterfly!

The Butterfly and the sentiment is from Gina K and the background script is

something I picked up at Michaels long ago.  One of those stamps you couldn’t live without!

What you do is cut a circle out of a piece of copy paper…the thinner the better.

Then lay the template on top of your card stock and stamp. It makes a perfect circle or

whatever shape you’ve used.  Then I repeated the step with the butterfly.

Hope this makes sense and I am sure the technique has a name! 

Let me know if you know what it is…LOL.

Probably some sort of masking technique.

Enjoy your day!
