S05 Flutterby

With colored pencils and a simple fun technique called impressing, you create a gorgeous pattern on the wings of a butterfly cartoon. Butterflies come in many different colors and their wings exhibit various beautiful delicate patterns. Impressing helps you create a delicate pattern on the butterfly’s wings by using a pointed blunt object, such as a stylus, to make an impression in the paper. The surface of the paper is then shaded with colored pencils to enhance the pattern and/or texture.
