Mobile Butterflies

It should be summer, right?   and we have a drought? umm Guess this year is all about the indoor barbecue.

And after all we can craft our own summer brightness and blooms can't we.   What can be more summer like than a flight of butterflies?   I'll admit a bit of time when into this but the result is a very decorative mobile or wall hanging.   More details about how to make one  on the Tando Creative online classes very soon so no need to go into the details here.  Just tell you that techniques used include embossing paste, gilding flakes, film transfer and of course stamping.
