Create Along With Us March 2016: Papertrey Ink Challenge

It's been a long time since I've been able to play with my Papertrey Ink goodies! The current Create Along With Us challenge was the perfect chance for me to get inky!

I was inspired by the incredible Betsy Veldman (card below)! You can find it here.

Not only did it give me reason to use the What the Doodle: Butterfly Mini set, I thought the colors she chose were incredible!

So, this is my take:

I chose some canvas paper for the background.  I wanted the texture to really show through when I added color.  I used white embossing powder to create the butterfly and to add a few items to the front panel.

I used Distress Inks Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Dried Marigold and Shabby Shutters.  Not only did I blend them into the butterfly and the background, I also added some water to them and flicked them onto the pieces.

Thanks for stopping by today!
