Butterfly Bling

I made this card for 2 different challenges. The first challenge was to add butterfly wings to a Tilda image that did not already have wings. The second challenge was the bling challenge on Sugar Sweet Paper Treats. I colored this adorable little Tilda with copic markers and then


accented her with my copic spica pens for a little bling factor. The frustrating thing is that I went totally crazy with the bling in the project and it just doesn't show up in the photos no matter what I tried. For the mushroom, I stamped it once on white paper, once on the striped paper and once on the polka dot paper and paper pieced it together. The striped paper is glittered cardstock, but I added some additional stickles to it as well as stickling the polka dots on the green paper. Her butterfly wings were cut from Pooh and Friends on my cricut. It was actually just half a butterfly and I cut it once and flipped it and cut it again then attached the 2 together. I added some stickles to her wings for more bling. Finally, I cut the butterfly border from Paper Pups and Hi There from beyond birthdays. Even though these were cut out of bling cardstock, I stickled on top of it to make them even blingier! I had a lot of fun with this project. I like combining my 2 favorites things- stamps and my cricut!
