International Swop Buddies- Cricut MB

This month my swap buddie is Shan (MomofKtimes2). We have been exchanging messages and among the things I sent to her was this butterfly that I made. I stamped the butterfly on to parchment paper using Stazon Opaque Cotton White ink, then embossed the pattern. Although it does not show on the right wing I pricked through the vellum. (you can see it on the left wing)
The antennae were made using wire and beads and the body has pearl beads along it. I then added a bit of 'stickling' to finish.
I love working with parchment and although it can be time consuming the results can be amazing.
