Beautiful Butterflies

I was finally able to get back in my craft room today.  It sure is hard to find time to craft anymore. Here's a card I made using the new MFT Beautiful Butterflies kit.

I ordered some beautiful reinkers from Gina K. Designs and decided to make a background using marbles.  Usually I have to raid my husband's gumball machine for this technique, but I recently purchased some marbles, so I don't have to do that anymore.  lol  The case the GKD kits come in is perfect for this technique.  I placed a piece of white card stock with repositional tape in the bottom and dotted some drops of reinker around the paper.  I used Innocent Pink and Tomato Soup.  Closed the lid and gave it a shake.  The marbles roll through the ink and all over the paper leaving a wonderful design.  This is what I came up with.

The butterflies were stamped with Innocent Pink, Tomato Soup and embossed with black embossing powder.  I added some Wink of Stella to their wings.

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.
