Butterflies are free to fly….

But not these. They are anchored down with glue dots. No flying away. Nyuh uh.

Hero Arts Silhouette Grass stamp in the background, stamped using Distress Inks (Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass) and with the same technique I used for the backgrounds in this post. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, too. The line of dots is from a $1 clear set I found at AC Moore a few weeks back and I think it fills the space perfectly.

The butterflies were cut an embossed with a Sizzix Embosslit from Stampin’ Up – Beautiful Wings. The antennae is/are a piece of twine that I colored dark brown with a Copic marker. They are so useful! What did we ever do before we found them? I don’t know either. I really like these little butterflies but they are smaller than I thought they would be – probably because I didn’t pay attention to the description. Embosslit! Hello! Small dies, small die cuts. They’re very pretty, I like ‘em.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.
