Butterfly Journey

Hi again, I'm getting lots of cards made so far these holidays, although my internet usage is nearly gone again!
When I coloured these butterflies they had quite a grungy feel to them so I thought they needed a grungy sort of background. I blended a few distress inks together to create this one.

I found my old typewriter in our shed and typed "ënjoy the"on some tissue paper so I could glue it onto the tag to add to the sentiment. This was my first go and I needed to touch up some of the tissue paper that still showed white. I'll keep experimenting lol!

I'm linking up to the mixed media challenge at Happy Little Stampers where the theme is distress.

At Addicted to Stamps & More it's make your mark.
I've coloured the butterflies with prismacolor pencils.

At Word Art Wednesday it's anything goes.
