Butterfly in Buttons Canvas

Good morning everyone, hope you are well! Here I am with a canvas I have made with my favourite subject butterflies!
For this project I cut two different sized Butterflies from my Cricut create, which I then drew round with pencil on my canvas. I mixed a colour with Acrylic paints to make my background colour and painted this round the butterflies shapes I had drawn on.
Next I raided my Vintage buttons tin! I found lots of gorgeous buttons to use and made the butterfly shape with my assorted buttons :-)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Art with No Boundaries: Anything Goes
Crafty Boots Challenges: Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs: Vintage
Use Your Stuff: Texture

Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments :-)

  16. What an absolutely gorgeous card. My friend would have a fit if she saw this card as she believes buttons are for looking at and touching but NOT using. I agree with you, they should be used and you have used them in a very stunning way.
    Well Done :D
