Beautiful Butterflies

It's kReN here again. Are you feeling the change of seasons where you live?
I love to use spring colors and love to watch the butterflies in my back yard.
We purposely have plantings for butterflies-- milkweed, butterfly bushes, 
Porter Weed, and the list goes on and on.  It seems fitting that today I should share butterfly cards.  I used Two Sided Butterfly H3872 and E3873 Butterfly Trail.


I created a background with a technique I am calling "colorful bokeh" 
and I am liking the look.  When you are applying the distress inks to your card stock, set your applicator down and twist it to create you circle.  Then flick with water droplets.  Fun and easy!


As you can see, one was not enough.  I changed up the embellishments and  bling, added Wink of Stella, and deemed them "done."

Hi Kren, thanks for your visits & kind comments. Zipped over using your link, and very much enjoyed the way you've created this background for the very gorgeous butterfly. Thanks for explaining how you did this, because it looks like something I'd like to try! Just became your newest follower, and hope you'll have time to visit when you can. TFS
