Polka dots!  How could you have a set featuring patterned butterflies without polka dots!  (In case you didn’t already know, polka dots are my FAVORITE thing!)  I stamped the butterfly shadow with chalk ink (love how the chalk ink works with large solid images like this.  The stamped image ends up stamping perfectly even with no streaking or puddling), heat set it, then stamped the polka-dot overlay with Versamark and added turquoise Perfect Pearls.  The shimmer & shine looks so AMAZING in person!  The background was created by stamping the large and medium solid dots in Versamark on green patterned paper (Lime Swirl from Shabby Princess Collection by Bo-Bunny Press) and then brushing them with prefect Pearls.  I sketched a swirled "flight path" with pencil and used my paper piercer to punch the holes.  I then carefully erased the pencil marks.  The "Heartfelt thanks" sentiment is one of my favorites, well, actually I think the ENTIRE set is my favorite!  I haven’t mentioned yet that these butterflies have a perfectly portioned 2.25 inch  wing span.  They aren’t too big and they aren’t too small.  This size really makes them so versatile!  One more patterned butterfly tomorrow!  Can you guess what "basic" is left?
