I used Aurora Spring Butterfly from the East Wind for this project. She is colored with Copics and cut out using the Silhouette Cameo. The digi actually had dots and bubbles, but I added the enamel dots and sequins where those were instead. I just loved the idea of laying in the grass and watching the butterflies so I wanted to give that feeling without creating an actual scene. I printed the word "dream" onto a scrap piece of card stock and then used the die to cut it out. The die is from Spellbinders and is actually a speech bubble. I just cut off the little tail to make it into a cloud. I saw these used on someone's project and loved the stitched look. The enamel dots I used actually started out as pony beads. I melted them in the oven (whew! what a smell) and they become the perfect shape for enamel dots. The size of the dot is determined by the size of the bead you start with. I have also seen people use perler beads for the same purpose. You can find a number of tutorials online for the process.
