A Little Inky

I played around with some Distress Inks to make the inky background for the butterflies.  I'm really loving the colour combo of Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves and thought it would look great on a black card.
I sprayed the distressed piece with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer and stamped the Social Butterfly from Penny Black in white dye ink on top.

The card base was clear embossed with Penny Black's Paisley Outline for some subtle texture and the sentiment is from their Gratitude set.

I just got the Large Flourish Die (I consider it to be more of a leafy stem) from La-La Land and wove it around the butterfly panel.

Here's a close-up of the embossing and shimmering.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
