     These butterflies were made by using the tutorial found at Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen called Chipboard Embellishments. While she went on to use her butterflies as elements in digital layouts, I took my objects off the page and mounted them on chipboard.  They are about 3 1/2 in. wide.

     I started by selecting backgrounds from her Digital Kit called 'Firm Foundation'.  I also picked a couple backgrounds to use to make flowers.  The antenna's are made of wire and I decorated each with small metal Steampunk gears.

     This is my entry to Challenge #30 in Tim Holtz's book  'A Compendium of Curiosities 3'.  If you don't have the book you can get a signed copy HERE
     My glass bottle is filled with a secret 'Love Potion'.  Anyone care to try a sip?

     I started by gathering all my ingredients and following the directions on page 54 of Tim's book.  I can't give away the technique, but it sure was fun!  Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi are offering a great prize to the Curiosity Crew's pick.

     Here's a close up of the Faux Cracked Glass technique.  If you would like to get involved just go to Linda Ledbetters site HERE to get full instructions.

     There is also a prize of a $25 Gift Certificate being offered by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  You can visit their site HERE.
