Card for Lawnscaping Challenge # 28: Distress Mania

I had fun watercoloring with my growing collection of Distress Inks for this challenge.
Here is my card:

I added some Distress Ink to watercolor paper and blended them with water before running it though an embossing folder on the Big Shot. I stamped the butterflies with Staz On ink onto watercolor paper. I added the ink straight to a nonstick craft sheet and then just used a brush and water to watercolor the butterflies. The card would work with a variety of greetings or without a greeting. I may make more of these cards!

Update 3/2/12
The card was chosen as an "Honorable Gnome" for the Lawnscraping Challenge. This is my first card award!

Supplies used:
Note: The butterfly stamp from Stampin' Up! is retired so a similar stamp is shown below.

Thank you for stopping by my blog!
