Happy Birthday...

Howdy's Fi here with today's post!  It's late, but as they say better late than never..

For this card I used the MFT Happy Birthday Background stamp and the MFT Beautiful Butterflies, I white embossed the background on watercolour card. I then stamped distress ink onto a piece of acetate, I loaded my brush with water and lifted the ink and washed it randomly over the embossed writing.  I didn't want to cover it all.  I inked up the butterfly with distress inks aswell and cut out.  I used sticky fixers to layer the butterfly and the sentiment. The sentiment is from Altenew Label Love. 
I finished with some ink splodges and sequins.

Really levelly delicate colours of the background and a like the black as a great contrast.

I really love your designing and colour combinations, this is a great example of white embossing with colour on top, I'm inspired to do something similar now! Thanks for sharing this project with us at Moving Along with the Times this week! x Jessie
