Water Tapestry

I had the hardest time with this card. Its for a swap and after I did my background using this month's technique "Water Tapestry", I didn't want to cover it up. You see, I made the mistake of using the Flowering Flourishes stamp set which I love. The colors for the background were Adirondack alcohol ink, Brights collection which worked perfect with the gold embossing. I will definitely use this technique again.

I am entering this card in the February challenge over at Delightful Inspiriation. You can get more information on the challenge by clicking on the link. The digi stamp set is called Spring Baskets. I made the image small so I could show off my background. I used pencils and glitter pens to color the image. The butterflies were cut from leftover background paper using the Beautiful Wings embosslit.
Thanks for stopping by. Take Care
