Insects

I didn't really know where to start with this one, I must have a box full of butterfly stamps. In the end, I went for a variety of insects. They both have distress ink backgrounds, which I layered with stencils, I then added some stamped images. The top one has a grungeboard butterfly covered in distress ink and stickles, one with painted foil, and the others stamped and coloured. They are all just attached by the centre, so are 3D.  The dragonfly and butterfly all have stickles on them, to give them some shimmer. The beetle and ladybirds have a coat of gloss medium on them. None of this is visible on the scan unfortunately
The lower tag has some commercial butterflies, dragonflies and ladybirds on it. The background is a Tim Holtz stamp.
