Good morning and happy Saturday to you! My love for Hero Arts background stamps continues to grow and today I used the Antique Writing background. This stamp is so pretty! I stamped it twice so I could cut out and pop up the butterflies. I used my ink blending tool and bundled sage and tumbled glass distress inks to ink the background. I colored the butterflies with bundled sage and tumbled glass distress markers. I love that distress colors are in marker form now too! :) I colored over the butterflies with my sakura stardust glitter pen for some serious sparkle...
Ahhh sparkly goodness! :) Oh, I forgot to say that flicked on some perfect pearls and water on the background to get a subtle splotchy look. 

I hope you have a fabulous day!
