A new stamp

I bought a new stamp the other day (a Jenni Bowlin one, not Tim Holtz, for once).  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it ... after making several batches of christmas cards like the ones in this post , I thought I could use the same technique to make some birthday cards ... so today I had a go and came up with this one

As before, the background is distress stains/inks finished with a misting of perfect pearls mist.  I can do the same design in all sorts of colour schemes (I feel a shopping spree for more inks/sprays coming on ...), and I'm going to experiment with stamping the butterfly with different coloured inks too.

Once I'd made one, I had to try a few different colours ...
