FP Butterfly

I've made this butterfly from friendly plastic, peels offs, wire and a few beads.  I took a white strip of FP and coloured it using cool peri and salmon AI's from the lights selection.  I used surgical spirits to blend them together.  I shaped the wire into wings.  Heated the plastic and pushed the wire into it.  I also pushed in four peel off dots, one in each wing.  Once cooled, I cut them out.  I stuck two of the wings together by applying sticky silver foil to the back.  I strung some beads on a piece of wire and used it for the body.

**Yes Kate, it has gone a little pink, but that's just for you!!!**

Inspiration for this piece was gained from a Linda Peterson FP tv show.
