National Craft Month Day 5

Tonight, I played with my Cricut Expressions.  I still have yet to make a title for my bulletin board in school:  Think Spring.  Like I've said in an earlier post, it's been a long winter and everybody's looking forward to the colors of Spring.  All the white, gray and cold is starting to get tiring.

I cut my letters and shadows with the Zooballoo cartridge.  Afterwhich, I inked the edges with purple ink.  After attaching each letter to each shadow, I pierced holes, and connected each hole with a Sharpie fine marker.  I can say that  this is a "lazy" way of  stitching in paper crafting, but it still works!  Then with my Wizard cut and emboss Butterfly die, I made the butterflies.  The blue butterfly is actually packaging of Verve stamps.  The yellow butterfly is glitter cardstock and the orange butterfly is leftover cardstock.  Then, I inked the "body" black with a black fine Sharpie marker, and added glimmer on the orange butterfly with AtYou Spica glitter pen.

These letters will go with the 3D flowers I made on Day 2.  A few more elements and my bulletin board will be finished :)
