STAMPlorations April Theme & Photo Prompt challenge reminder

For my second project, I painted a few of the
CRAFTplorations Butterflies using the colors in the photo:

The raspberry butterfly is stenciled in white paint using the
 Make Marks #3 ARTplorations stencil. Once the paint dried,
I placed the stencil back on and traced around the design 
with a blue marker, to give it a fun, whimsical look:

On the green butterfly, I used a white Gelly Roll pen to trace the
design using the Swirly Blooms ARTplorations stencil. I dotted the 
centers of the flowers with the raspberry paint:

On the blue butterfly, I started with one wing and using the white
Gelly Roll pen, traced the design from the Christmas Wreaths
ARTplorations stencil. Then I flipped the stencil over onto the
other wing, trying to line up the design as close as possible to get
a mirror image, and traced the design. I color filled the leaves and
berries with the same green and raspberry paints:

Once the sealer was dry, I added rhinestones to the bodies for
some sparkle! I haven't decided yet if I want to add these to
a wreath, or to make them into ornaments. Decisions, decisions! 😀
