Colorful Butterfly Charms


Lately, I have been on the computer a lot...tons of writing! Last night, I just needed a creative break...but was too tired to stitch. So, I pulled out the box of fingernail polish bottles...and painted some butterfly charms.
 
 
Then, I dug out the Ranger Alcohol Inks and painted some more!
 
 
Now, I had a great stack waiting for me this morning...all dry and ready to be put into the charm draw...just waiting for their home on a crazy block!

lOVE THE BUTTERFLIES, YOU did take a creative break and made some little fluttering masterpieces.

They are adorable. I have done some of these in the past and then taken a soft cloth with some black tole paint and brushed it on and then wiped it off and it stays in the crevices and highlights the lines, it makes them stand out some.

I could also see some of your gorgeous beads glued to the wings in different spots.

Hi Kathy. I remember that you posted about using nail polish on your charms some time ago. I wish I had remembered before I finished my block. These look great!.
