Butterfly Circles

Hello!  I hope you are staying warm!  It's really cold here:  5 degrees with windchill of -18.  New record low!  Still glad I'm not in Massachusetts but it's strange that my friends in Alaska are experiencing warmer weather than I am here in Virginia.  All to say that I'm creating my own spring in my craft room!  And what better way to signal spring than butterflies?  Suzanne had just sent me this sweet Butterfly Circles set and I love love love this big stamp.  The letters and flourishes intertwine in the coolest way and there's a perfect space in the center for my butterfly dies.

I first did a rainbow color wash on watercolor paper.  I used Memory Box's Darla and Vivienne Butterflies for my focal point and added some layered, punched butterflies.  The large stitched circle die is from Lil' Inkers and the paper from Colorbok was sponged around the edges with distress ink Salty Ocean.   Some pearls for the butterfly body for my final touch.  Hope you like it!
