This is a fairly simple card that took me a long time to make. I went to my local shop, Made By You, last week and had a play with Distress Inks sponged onto the background, this is a card I came up with. I'm entering it for two butterfly challenges: the first is Danni's Flutterby Wednesday and this week Quixotic Challenges also has a butterfly theme.
The stamps are by Crafty Individuals. I stamped the butterflies onto a piece of card using Aged Mahogany and then on a larger piece in dark brown, then added lots of inks with sponges until I got a heavily antiqued effect. I also stamped a couple of framed flowers repeatedly and sponged them with slightly lighter inks, then cut out a frame. The smaller piece of card was stuck inside the frame and both were then put onto the larger piece of card, using pads for the frame. I added a cutout butterfly to the frame.
