Butterfly Wishes background

Hi there,

an early post for me today as I wanted to catch the only two rays of sunshine to take my picture!

I made my own background for this card by rubbing pink and purple inks onto white card then I stamped the butterflies (Clearly Besotted) using Versamark. Next I heat embossed with clear embossing powder then covered the whole card with black ink. With a tissue I then rubbed over the card to make the butterflies appear - magic!
It's not as clear as I would like but it is my first attempt.
I followed a tutorial from  Catherine Pooler where she makes everything look so easy!

I hope that my card doesn't look too dark - perhaps my 3D butterflies should have been a lighter colour.
Anyway that's my card for the day thanks for stopping by and a big thank you if you leave a comment!
