Etsy Inspired

The EtsyInspired blog is celebrating their 100th challenge so I thought I would make a card! The inspiration is from Cathy Walters Etsy shop. She makes beautiful pendants and this butterfly one caught my eye. Love the blues and purples!

Here is my card inspired from the pendant.
I used Alcohol Inks in blues and purples to colour some glossy paper and them embossed the butterfly in black on top and added a bit of shimmer with a Stardust Pen. The background was done in Distress Inks and all was mounted on the Big Scalloped Circle die cut. I didn't add a sentiment on the front, instead I stamped it on the inside of the card. I do this quite often to have a cleaner looking front.

Thanks for stopping by!
