#386 – Butterflies

PE: Top Pick at Inkspirational Challenge!

Hello! I made this card a few months ago, but forgot to publish about it. I usually lack creativity when it comes to butterflies on cards; I really struggle with them, believe me! But this one came pretty easy –

I then trimmed a piece of white card stock and added a few splotches of watered-down Black Soot distress paint.
