Die cut all the elements from Lavender, Lavender Starstruck, Turquoise, Turquoise Starstruck, Fuchsia, Fuchsia Starstruck, Violet Starstruck, Violet, Arctic Starstruck using cutting dies 'Petite Petals by Sizzix'. You can put a tiny bit of red liner tape on the back of your die cuts.
Fold a piece of A4 copy paper in half and using a pencil draw an outline of a butterfly. Fussy cut your butterfly and use it as a stencil and trace the outline of the butterfly onto cardboard and fussy cut it.
Use alcohol inks from your stash, 91 % alcohol, pipette and an air blower to create a colourful splashed background on Arctic Starstruck Rinea foiled paper. Adhere the background onto the cardboard butterfly using liquid glue.
Use the butterfly stencil you created and trace it onto black card, fussy cut it and adhere on the back of the cardboard butterfly, use a pokey tool to make two holes at the top of the butterfly.
Use your beautiful floral die cuts and adhere them on your butterfly, try to create a symmetrical composition, you can use a red liner tape or liquid glue. Attach a string at the top and your project is complete.
Hang you floral butterfly on the wall and admire :)
Have a wonderful day and happy crafting!
