I Heart Mushrooms! Cuttlebug challenge # 32

Let me start by saying that I have an affection for mushrooms that most certainly stems from my childhood. I remember so many things in the 70's sporting a mushroom motif, maybe most memorable an apron that my grandmother wore around the house. She ran a little thrift store that all the grandchildren considered our personal playhouse it was the ultimate place to play dress up! It was a magical wonderland, and I will always treasure my visits to the shop. This week cuttlebug be inspired challenge# 32 is hearts and butterflies. I have tons of butterfly ideas, but this is one Ive been dying to try. This is one of my favorite project ideas. I could just squeeze the stuffing out of it! {squeal}
I wanted the underside to be finished, and just as pretty as the rest of my adorable mushroom.

I made an acetate butterfly, and embossed it with by cuttlebug folder, then sponged the edges with stazon.it doesn't show in the photo but I also cut out holes along the wings with my cropodile.


My little mushroom Forest!

Hi Shantaie,
I love this mushroom idea. Would you please share the recipe? I want to know what you used for the round top --- a styrofoam ball? The stem? The measurement of the dp paper you used for the underside, too. Everything!! Squeeze it, go ahead.
thanks, princessmce@comcast.net --- please let me know.
