Ombre Butterflies

Happy World Cardmaking Day 2015

Playing in a few challenges today with this card. 
When I first started stenciling with the modeling paste, I thought "well Poopitz". There was still some ink on the stencil from when I last used it with my eBrush, so when I started scrapping the modeling paste across it, it was bringing up the old ink and discoloring the paste.
Different, but I like it.
I also know what will clean alcohol ink off a stencil now. Who knew?

Butterflies were stamped, trimmed and colored with Copics.
Heat embossed sentiment, a little washi tape, then finished with buttons and a bow.

I really like this. The happy accident made a perfect background. Possibly, that is how some new techniques are discovered. :)
