Sit, Scrap, and Relax!

A peek into my scrappy life.

Butterfly Canvas


Recently I created this 8×8 canvas, just for fun. I have had (have been hoarding) the beautiful steampunk butterfly chipboard from Creative Embellishments for months and I used their June challenge as an excuse to finally use it!butterfly2

The challenge was to use the picture for inspiration and to include something with wings.


I liked the metallic look of the picture so I chose to use metallic Distress Paint and Distress Stain for the canvas and chipboard. I also used silver embossing enamel on the edges of the butterfly for extra texture. To create enough contrast for the butterfly to stand out from the background, I used black gelatos to darken it.

Thanks for stopping by!
