Still on my butterfly obssession

I've recently discovered Jennifer McGuire's blog - I've seen her name before (so many wonderful crafters out there but so little time!) but this past couple of weeks I've been going through her archives and tutorials.  I just love her style!  I do have one problem though - she makes me want to go out and get whatever supplies she's using!  I've seen a couple of posts about her craft room and I just have to stop or my DH would cut me off the internet.  Be still, my OCD heart!

I've been on a watercolor kick (and butterfly) lately so I was inspired to use it to make a backdrop for my butterfly I had sponged and traced with the stardust pen.  Honestly, the most difficult part was trying to get the gold twine to look "natural!"

Stamps:  Hero Arts Antique Butterflies and Flowers
