Butterfly Challenge #19 that starts today. The challenge is "paper-pieced butterfly." Here's the funny part -- I love paper-piecing, and I have my fair share of butterfly images, yet none of them really lend themselves to paper-piecing. I finally decided to work with an Inkadinkadoo image of a flock of butterflies, and try piecing a few of them -- the ones that had the more open patterns on them.
The butterflies are stamped in Navy, and the printed paper is from Lime Rickey by Basic Gray. Once I'd cut the oval, there was a partial butterfly at the top, which I chose to cover with a punched butterfly. (I put a solid orange butterfly behind the print/punched one so it didn't blend into the background.) I also used the old trick of running the edges of the paper along an orange ink pad to get a little line of color there.
