Petals for wings.


I have really liked the idea of using the petals from the Pick a Petal set as insect wings.
I have seen a few cards using this idea and decided to give it a go myself.
This is my first attemp at a butterfly made from the Pick a Petal set but since making it I have come up with other ideas of how to use it, so don't be surprised if you see another version posted up here soon.
The wings of the butterfly are made out of Vellum paper, in an attempt to give them that fragile look and I have dusted the edges with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds to give them some sparkle.

Stamps: Pick a Petal, Riveting, Bouquet Jumbo Wheel.
Inks: Brocade Blue, Versamark.
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue.
Accessories: Rich Regals Brads, Dazzling Diamonds.
Tools: Circle punches, paper piercing.
