I wanted to create a kind of "Zentangle" background with the pretty butterflies and swirls, so I stamped them with MFT Hybrid ink in Black Licorice. I blended the background using Distress Inks and a new-to-me product recommended by Mendi Yoshikawa - Tsukineko Jumbo Ink Daubers. They were a lot easier to use (for me) than the Ranger ink tools. I'm sold!! I'll need to get daubers for all the Distress colors. I mounted the butterfly panel on black cardstock and placed it near the top of my card base.
I stamped the sentiment towards the bottom and for added interest, I used my Scan-n-Cut machine to cut out five of the butterfly images. I glued them to each other only at the center so that the wings can fluff up for added dimension. A bit of Wink of Stella glitter on the butterfly was the finishing touch.
