Black and White Butterflies

I'd like to start this post by thanking all my lovely new followers- I really appreciate you following me and I love getting comments from you :-) 
For this project I used Papermania Capsule Collection Monochrome paper and gems, a white doily and my gorgeous vintage butterfly stamp set, stamped in Memento. 
I started by stamping the main image with a large butterfly stamp, then with the two little butterflies stamp onto a die cut circle and inked around the edges with the black ink pad. 
Next I attached this onto the doily and placed it onto the patterned paper. I next stamped directly onto the white card blank multiple times with the same two little butterflies stamp to match the image I chose as my focal point. I then stamped the 'Les Papillons' onto white card and mounted onto black card which I attached to the card with 3d foam pads.
Lastly I added black and white gems.
My Caterpillars
Here is a photo of my caterpillars two days into raising them-they are becoming more active now and starting to grow 'hairs' on their body too :-) Please come back and see them as they grow up-I am going to try and take a photo a day and put them on my posts :-)
