Butterfly Collage Piece

Butterfly Map Cut Out
Step one: Sketch and ink in the butterfly.  Use permanent ink.
Step Two: Color in the butterfly with ink and nail polish for sparkle.

Step Three: Cut out the butterfly with a knife.  More map critters today.  I hope to use them in the gallery paintings I need to finish.  I'm suppose to have all new work ready....like.....yesterday!  Help! ;)  I have some ideas for new pieces but I've been busy with my card making site so I'm way behind.

Okay! So!  If you guys visit the site and comment on the post at the top of the page or the ice cream cone card post I will make sure you are entered into the giveaway.  $20 gift card to Moonstruck Chocolate. Yum! 

Hugs and Happy Paint Party Friday!
