I made an ATC back in January with a similar design and thought I'd make a card with this background.
That one used crackle paste while on this one I used matte transparent paste.
I started with a piece of leftover brushos watercolour paper that was bluey grey, then stencilled on the matte transparent paste. Next I sprinkled on some infusions powder in brown tones and spritzed with water to get a vintagy splotchy look.
The butterfly was stamped with versafine, embossed with clear ep and coloured with prismacolour pencils. I emphasized the white dots with a paint pen.
I used some snippets of blue and black card in the layers,
so I'm linking up to the snippets challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, you only need one scrap or snippet to join in.
