Butterfly

Silken wings, thin as paper, light as down. Proof that nature only requires two dimensions to create beauty. And such beauty translates well to paper. The perfect subjects to draw or paint, though this time I used vintage images. Cut along intricate edges and fashioned into little clips, they're holding escort cards (made to mimic specimen tags) for Project Wedding, but I think they'd be equally dear gathering stray papers.
