I textured my background, but decided to leave my circle and squares clean and simple. They did get a little bit of sponging though around the edges to dingy them up a bit! I like the contrast that doing that offers. Gives your eyes lots to look at and your brain more to think about!
I heat embossed the butterflies with a pewter color and then colored them with sponge daubers. There is just something so darn cool about watching that powder transform onto the paper! I added a white ribbon and a fun little knot to the bottom.

Paper: Midnight Muse and Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Pretty in Pink, Summer Starfruit and Old Olive
