Madame Butterfly

Hello everyone! It's the 15th of the month and that means a new challenge at Bleeding Art!  It's always anything goes and we'd love to have you participate!!

For my DT project, I made a little Madame Butterfly 🦋

I recently obtained a bunch of different vintage and antique doll parts so I chose a Kewpie doll body and gave her wings!   The bigger wings are from Finnabair's butterfly tissue paper that I adhered to a cream card stock and cut out. I went around the edges with gold rub 'n buff.

The black wings are from molds I made of the new Butterfly Wings Art Foamies stamps from A Vintage Girl of which I'm a Brand Ambassador. I added waxes for an iridescent look. The smaller wings are also from Finnabair's tissue paper.

I put her in a little tin bucket - it was white but I painted it with iron paste and added a little rust paste, rusty wire, and safety pins. She's so adorable!

Please do stop by to participate! We have tab prize sponsors and you could be a guest designer!
