Designer Tip: To make the butterflies, use a cosmetic sponge with dabs of paint on white cardstock. Select about 3 colors of paint, and start dabbing onto the cardstock, in an area big enough to stamp your image. Keep dabbing and adding color. Let dry. Stamp over the paint with StazOn ink. Go back over areas with a paint brush to highlight. Cut close to the stamped edge. When placing them on the page, glue the body to the page, and use foam tape to make the wings curve. Stamp the antlers and tail after. The journaling butterfly was cut with the matching cutting die, but you could trace one of the butterflies to cut the shape.
