Golden Butterflies

The Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is "Distress It".  I used Antique Linen distress inks around the edge of my card front and also used Shaded Lilac distress ink on the scalloped dotted oval.

After I swiped the oval through the watered down distress inks on my craft sheet, I let it dry then rubbed on some gold gilding wax.

The butterflies were made using a combination of the large butterfly and small butterfly that come in the same set.  I cut the small butterflies on some lilac glitter paper and then cut the larger butterfly with gold paper.  I paper pieced the gold bits from the large butterfly into the wings of the smaller butterfly.

Products Used:  Diemond Dies Butterflies, Elizabeth Craft Designs Scallop Dotted Oval, Paper Studio Butterflies EF, distress inks, sequins, gold gilding wax

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
