Butterflies for You – by Heidi Blankenship

Heidi shares a wonderful tutorial for her project today. Perhaps we should call this project the metamorphosis of a butterfly. Heidi began with a sheet of white paper with black embossed butterflies (taken from a Kaisercraft paper pad), and then she did her magic with some distress inks and a stencil. The result is just stunning! Take a look:

The color is so rich and intense and the black just makes it all POP!

And before we get into the card details, I want you to see the BEFORE picture of the butterfly sheet.
