Butterfly Twinchies

Twinchie time again !!  This time I have made 6 twinchies in the theme of 'Butterflies'.  The background is made from white heavy card painted in Dylusions acrylic paints in magenta & rose.  Overlaid with Americana acrylics in saffron yellow, warm white & antique white.  These were applied with an old credit card in layers until happy with the colours.  Final coat was with Lumiere hi-lite red to give it a red subtle iridescence which doesn't show very well on the photos.  Once dry the background was cut into six 2 x 2 inch squares.

Next I stamped some butterflies (7 Gypsies polymer) onto the twinchies with archival black ink and added a small rub-on flower to each as shown.

Next I used a green Posca pen and doodled some leafy swirls freehand onto the twinchies as shown.

 I then added some crystal ice, crystal & diamond Stickles on the wings of the butterflies and edged the twinchies with dark green chalk ink to complete.
