Hey, hey Fetti Fans! It's Lisa Henke and I am back with a new frame. I am so ready for Spring, living in the Midwest, I know we have many weeks left of cold weather. Making happy, Spring decor pieces helps get me through the long winter months. The other night before I fell asleep, I was thinking about what I wanted to do for this post and it popped into my head about coloring these butterflies on fabric. I don't sew, so I knew it had to be something I could adhere together. I pulled out some neutral linen fabric I have in my stash and some cream felt and got busy. 



So I started with cutting a piece of Sand card stock to fit my frame. My frame is 5x5, but you could do this with any sized frame. I roughly measured the fabric to a little bit larger, honestly I just eyeballed it. You just need to have enough extra fabric to wrap around the card stock. I used some Scor-tape and added strips along the back of the card stock piece and adhered each side of the fabric to the back of the card stock one at a time. You can see the 5x5 card stock piece with the Score-tape on the back, with the fabric ready to be wrapped around and adhered down. 


Once I had the fabric adhered down, I flipped it over and then stamped the Butterfly Wreath.  Using my Misti helped me get a good solid stamping, being able to stamp it multiple times. I hit it with my heat tool, just to make sure the ink was set and wouldn't bleed when I colored it with my copics. With a very light hand, I slowly added color to all the butterflies. If you use a heavy hand to color, you will run the risk of the color bleeding on the fabric. 

After I was done with the Copic coloring, I used a white gel pen to add some dot detail. As a finishing touch I decided to add a touch of sparkle with some clear seed beads. I used some Crystal Effects to adhere them to the centers of a few of the butterflies. I cut a Scalloped frame from cream felt with the Scalloped Squares Confetti Cuts and adhered it down with more of the strong Scor-tape adhesive. 


I then cut three Sand Hello word die-cuts with the Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts. I added a touch of color with some light reddish-peach Copics, R02 and R05 markers. I just added the shading to the bottom of each of the letters to give an ombre effect. I added the finished piece to the black frame. 


Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day.
