Crafty Individuals Challenge.

Just in time! My entry for the CI April challenge. Background  paper made using polystyrene chips dipped in paint and swirled. Stamped CI 347 twice to decoupage the butterflies, coloured, glittered and cut out whole image and attached with dimentional dots. Stamped image again and used as 'leaves' for the baby wipe layered flower i'd used for cleaning up paint from making background. Finished with a fancy brad for flower centre and pearls on butterfly bodies. Dont know if you can see the layers are edged with silver krylon.
