Alcohol Ink Butterflies

I was talking to my BFF Dar at 
Dar's Crafty Creations
about a few 'free' days I had open on my blog and asked her if she wanted
to join in a challenge with me that I picked out....
of course she said yes...
and I chose Sum More Fun challenge....
I think it was because they have a 'mood board'
and if you visit my blog often you know I adore mood boards.

For my card I choose the largest picture on the left.

Quite awhile ago, I grabbed some watercolor papers and my 
Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol inks and began making some paper backgrounds
which I set aside and never used until today!
The background behind the Memory Box Butterfly Collage die cut (one of my very favorite dies)
was actually pieced in as I had used the main piece for a card
that will be 'debuting' on my blog on Wednesday.
(so make sure and stop by to see that)

In trying to use some more things from my stash, 
I added gems to the butterflies and a few sequins for sparkle.

Make sure and pop on over to see Dar's beautiful creation and also
to come back Thursday as Dar has picked out a challenge
and has challenged ME...can you tell we are having fun?

Wow, you did that alcohol background on watercolor paper? It's gorgeous! Beautiful way to show it off, too. You girls have too much fun. I'm really wanting to get back to my stamp room, but so many other things claiming my time. Hear me whine?
