Amazing Butterflies

Hi everyone!

I can't believe how fast the time goes! I meant to post this a few days ago. {g}  This card uses one of my favourite techniques, creating your own background.   Don't you just love these butterflies?

For this card I masked the top left hand corner with a piece of torn copy paper, I stamped the En Francais background, and the flower image in the blank space, then I filled it with different colours of ink with my sponge.  The effect is so soft and pretty!  I hope you like it!

Edited to add: This card was inspired by the very talented Sandi MacIver.  Thanks Sandi for the inspiration!

What I used:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry and Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper
Ink: Pale Plum, Pretty in Pink, Crushed Curry (for sponging) Perfect Plum (Sentiment) Close to Cocoa for Background.
Stamp Sets: En Francais, Charming and Vintage Labels
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Butterfly Embosslits, Word Window Punch, Modern Punch, Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon, Frost White Shimmer Paint (for dots on centres of the Butterflies)

Thanks for stopping by
