Monarch Butterflies Landing on a Paper Flowers Pomander

This was created on a Sunday afternoon during a dull rain over Boston and Cambridge.

First I made the 20 paper roses from papers in shimmering pink, white, and designer prints. Thanks to my newly-purchased cat-eye inks, each rose petal gets its own definition and depth.

The white paper butterflies were added at the end. They are Monarchs, pretty as can be, and quite delicate.

This could be a gorgeous handmade decoration for a wedding, birthday party, garden party, or just a pretty something to cheer up a favorite room.

The whole thing measures about 5" in diameter, and for a limited time can be seen in my shop.
