Sparkle Butterfly

This week the Outlines girls were challenged to make a Sparkly project.

I chose the H-801 Sparkle Butterfly stamp for my card today. I colored the image with Copic markers and used my Gold Pearl Pen for the little dots on the butterfly.

I made the antenna for the butterfly with  Flower Soft Wires . I cut a 2″ piece of wire and bent it in half. I colored the wire with a black marker.

I added a little bit of  Flower Soft Glue to the tips of the wires and sprinkled Ultra Fine Ocean Flower Soft into the glue. I put it into a sponge to dry.

I used Picksey-Pick Ups to attach Topaz Size 12 Swarovski to the butterfly.

Check out what the other girls made!
