Butterfly smile :)

Hello again I am back with another card which should have been posted on Friday (!) but due to a tummy bug was delayed !

It is time for a new challenge over at the Stampin' for the weekend challenge blog and this week we are sponsored by Simon says stamp

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Our challenge this fortnight is monochrome. I have to admit that when I hear monochrome I cringe as I find it so difficult to use just one colour but I also have to admit that I really had fun creating this card.

First I created the background by inking up my acrylic block with my distress ink pad and spritzing with a water spray then stamping onto watercolour card. 
Then with the same ink pad I stamped some text on top - this is very faint but if you click on the picture you may see it. Then butterflies "smile" and the sentiment were stamped in a darker pink and finally I attached a couple of buttons with some button twine to the butterflies. 
All of this was then layered onto a matt of pink and popped up on foam pads on the base card.

I hope you like my creation and that you will join in and play along with us at stampin' for the weekend this week x
