Wall Art

0809 KC alt butterflies

See the vinyl quote above our entry door? I LOVE them. I cannot get enough of them. They are all over my house. So, playing around with my Spellbinders™ dies one day, I wondered if I could create my own. I bought some basic, white shelf liner from Target. And as you can see, it worked wonderfully!!

To create the butterflies, I used Nested Butterflies. To get the black color, I used my Copics and airbrushed the color. It did take a few layers of black to get the deeper color.

0809 KC alt snowflakes

I added little snowflakes to my wall of frames.

You can see how great they cut and they remove easily from the wall. Nothing permanent.

For this one, I die cut a circle and a label shape. I stamped the image with Palette ink and colored the flowers in with Copics. The sentiment was also stamped in Palette ink. If you try this, and I hope you do, make sure that you put the liner with the backing DOWN into the die. That makes the cutting work better for some reason.

Hope this inspired you to try out some fun and seasonal decorations around your house! Easy, cheap, and moveable! :) thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Spellbinders (Nested Butterflies, Label Trio, Standard Circles Large, Create a Flake 1 and 2), Copics, Stamps (Hero Arts)

Loving those snowflakes!!!! I bought the white vinyl last year to try creating a sentiment on the Cricut, but wasn't even sure how to start. Those snowflakes might be the perfect project to experiment with!
