For the first card i have created an alcohol ink background which I left in once piece. To create this background I used Yupo synthetic paper and place Indogo and Amethyst Alcohol inks randomly over the page and manipulating the ink with blending solution and a air puffer to create a marble type effect for the background. Once I was haappy with the piece I set that aside to dry and worked on the rest of the card.

I have used the Flight of butterflies stampset for both the largest butterfly and sentiment. With the same embossing powder from WOW! Embossing powder Primary Indigo I have created two types of butterflies. The two butterflies on the top is just straight heat embossed with embossing powder and the Ultra Slow Drying ink.
