Yesterday I revealed the theme for the swap in my Artist Trading Coins UK swaps group over on Facebook… Butterflies.
I figured it would be an easy theme for people to join in with as there are so many butterfly themed crafting things around and not the hardest things to draw or paint either!
I decided to use a lot of supplies that were hanging around on my desk to make mine.I chose papers from Making Cards magazine kit that I had never got round to putting away for covering the coins and then added another layer of a partially die cut wall (Tim Holtz dies). Then I die cut book print using the leaf die from Petals and More. Then took a shiny leaf from the stash, copper thread and some little flower embellishments.
Then for the butterfly…. Butterfly basics little text butterfly which I white heat embossed on some bronze cardstock and stuck it down. I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto shrink plastic and heat it so it became a cute embellishment.Absolutely love these textural and layered coins with fun embellishments.
Hopefully the eventual recipients do too!
