Butterfly Boy

Hi all, I hope your week is going well and welcome to my new followers, thanks for visiting my blog!

You may remember this post when I spoke about my youngest being Bug Boy, well we did the growing of the butterflies again this summer. He still loves watching the caterpillars turn into a crysalid and then into a beautiful butterfly!

As soon as the butterflies hatch we let them go, only this year, when we took them outside, they were not so keen to come out of their netted habitat.  My son carefully placed his hand inside taking care not to touch their wings, let them climb onto his finger, and then took them out and let them fly away!

I used kraft paper as my base and cut some butterflies out from some Tim Holtz paper. I coloured them with distress inks to match the real butterfly and added some perfect pearls for decoration.

I edited the photo in Picasa so that the photo was black and white appart from the colour of the butterfly. I layered this several times onto black and orange card.

I added a simple border by sewing around the edge with my sewing machine.  Here is the photo of him with one butterfly sitting on his finger!

Thanks for visiting today, have a wonderful weekend,
