Anything but a card

It's the second week of wings at ABAC with some fabulous inspiration from the team
I've made a background of distressed inks and stamped with an old Paper Artsy numbers plate and added some picket fence crackle paint.
The very old butterfly stamp I choose because it had very little detail on it was stamped with the new Paper Artsy numbers plate (just love that stamp) and I think you can just see the distress stickles on the wings

I don't know about you but we had a sprinkling of snow this morning but it's back to the rain now :( roll on spring

Just catching up Von! Love the depth the layers create with this piece.The colours are soft and dreamy but you've got lots of texture going on here - love it!
Will catch up with you properly soon.
