I stamped the iris with black stazon. I put a water colored base and colored over it with prisma colored pencils. I added some colored texture pasts. To make it look realistic, I took a paintbrush to rough up the paste. The butterfly is dimensional. I shaped it over my finger. I added bling as a trail. I have about 12 cards to make for graduates for this Sunday.

Check out what the rest of the design team has made with this set
