Mixed Media Butterfly with Judy

Hello everyone!

Judy here with a beautiful butterfly card for my DT share! I call it "elegant grunge." :)

I started with a piece of cardstock that I had used to stamp off the Two Tone stamp from Grunge Tones (Visible Image). I had randomly stamped the dots with Charcoal ink from Close to my Heart and threw it in my unfinished projects box. It was the perfect background for the Butterfly Ink Stencil from Visible Image stamps, and three Distress Oxide Inks: Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves. 

Next,  I added my sentiment (The World Needs Art/Visible Image), using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink, and my Mini MISTI to get a good solid black image. I then embossed the sentiment with Clear Embossing Powder (WOW!). 

I randomly added the Large Crack (Create it!/Visible Image) and flowers with embossing ink, and then embossed with Rich Pale Gold EP (WOW!).

I added some interest to the card base with the same Large Crack image, using embossing ink as a watermark.
I love how it turned out! I think this card was the most fun because I just kept adding things here and there -- and didn't mess it up!
