*Butterfly heart* ~ I heart you (Part Two)

Hello creative friends.

It's time to remind you that *I Heart You*
and that there's still time to join in with the That's Crafty Blog Challenge.

Here is my mid month make with those *How to Do's..

Onto an MDF Tag I layered Texture paste through the floral heart stencil
and when dry added a layer of light texture paste over the top.

Two sizes of greyboard butterflies were glued together with detail drawn onto 
the wings very slowly. The Butterfly was then put aside and left to dry.

That's Crafty Multi surface Orange and Red give that bright colour.

Chestnut brown helps accentuate those veins with added dots of white posca.
A beaded wire body and antennae adds to that detail.

Mustard Yellow and a Lime wash is painted around the textured floral heart

with the raised flower painted in pearl metallic.

The Butterfly is adhered with glue gel and a sentiment created by piecing words together 
from Lynnes Affirmations set 3. Evergreen is dripped around the heart and edges darkened with  black blending ink.  A coating of 3D Gloss Gel completes my

*Butterfly Heart tag..*

I do hope you can join us over on the That's Crafty I Heart You Challenge
and I look forward to catching up with you all very soon.

Creative Hugs and Wishes
Tracey xx
