I white embossed the Penny Black floral and the My Favorite Things butterfly separately onto water color paper. I water colored with Distress inks. I only used 3 colors for the whole card so it has a "matchy" feel to it...kind of serene. Because of that though I needed to do something to pop the butterfly from the background. I used a Papertrey Ink die that looks like "messy string" which seemed too flat. I added some pretty iridescent real string for more interest on top of that. Then I popped up the butterfly to get some lift. I finished it off with some sequins glued with Matte Medium and some matching flags. I accidentally creased one of the three butterflies I colored when die cutting the one I was going to use. I stamped them too close to each other. I was able to use the boo-boo butterfly by cutting off the bad part and putting it inside the card for interest.
