Inky Backgrounds at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

I started by applying Mustard Seed and Barn Door distress  inks with a mini applicator to some Easons Wedding Card (I'm finding this card excellent for inking techniques where you are going to really wet the cardstock). I then spritzed the card heavily with water, dried with a heat gun, and dipped the card back into the ink beads on my craft mat. After drying the card again I trimmed it down and stamped the Hero Arts stamp and sentiment and mounted onto black card.  I used splatters of the same ink on the base card.

I cut 3 butterflies from black card, and added 3 butterflies cut from the trimmed piece of inked background.

I'd like to enter this card into:

Thanks for visiting.
