DIY Watercolor Butterfly Ephemera


Using stickers from the Dollar Tree you can watercolor them in a variety of different colors and designs. DIY ephemera is unique and can save you money. Using the sticker from the Dollar Tree was easy but you could alternately die-cut your shapes as well.

Alcohol Ink Stickers

Trying alcohol ink on silver metallic looking stickers from the Dollar Tree.

finished stickers

Alcohol inks are very fun to create with. They interact with each other in interesting ways creating different results each time. They work on most non-porous surfaces so when I saw these metallic-looking stickers at the Dollar Tree, I knew I wanted to try alcohol ink on them.


Metallic stickers come in silver, gold, and bronze colors. I chose the silver thinking it would work best with the inks.

First I tried dropping the ink onto the sticker, the next one I tried applying the ink with a cotton swab, and on the last sticker, I switched to acrylic paint markers. Each process gave a different result. The video tutorial below will take you through each process.

I think the first and last version gave the best results. While the stickers appeared metallic in the package and once removed appeared more like plastic either surface should work. The alcohol ink didn’t work as well as I expected. The acrylic paint markers gave great coverage but lost the metallic quality of the original sticker. In summation, the plastic mailing envelope I used as a protective work surface actually had the best results from the alcohol ink being applied to it. So now I have another project to work on!

This illustrated Bible makes for a beautiful gift for girls.

I am so happy to review this great Bible gift. It is appropriate for girls age 8 – 12. If you know a girl like my daughters, it is easier for them to listen and follow along in church if they are doodling or coloring. Now they can do so with an even more focused purpose.
