Magic Butterflies

Or, maybe, magic moths?  This technique was called "Magic Snowflakes" when I first heard of it, but, really…I'm not into snow right now!  So I decided to use the little butterfly/moth from Nature Walk instead.

I was playing with the idea of teaching this technique at a workshop tomorrow, but decided to go another way.  We will be using it at the technique class this month, though, so be sure to sign up for Wednesday's class!  You can comment here, on my web site, or send me an e-mail.  There's a $5. supply fee, and you'll create two technique cards and a greeting card with one of the techniques. 

Here's the card.  I'll post a tutorial with the instructions for the technique after class Wednesday.

Something is wrong with my camera, so Mike took this one with his.  Every time I try to photograph a card or other project with his camera, it's all blurry.  I'm not sure why, but he did take photography classes when he was younger, so it's probably because he knows what he's doing.  I forgot to crop out the background (I guess using a different camera had me "off my game!"), so it's not as easy to see.

I'm excited about the workshop tomorrow!  I have some new stampers coming, and I'm using one stamp set for four different projects.  I love showing how versatile our stamps are!

Here are the supplies for the Magic Butterflies.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Can you believe they're calling for snow here?  Just showers and flurries, but still….I'm over snow and ready for spring!
