I couldn't choose one favourite, so this time I'm using another of my all time fave sets, 'Penny Black Butterfly Trio'. It's such a bold set and there are lots of different ways to use them. I couldn't stop at one, so I have a twofer!
|I used Daniel Smith Watercolours for the card on the left. My aim was to create muted tones, but it didn't quite turn out as muted as I'd like, because I added some highlites with Zig Markers. The background colour (mud), was made by mixing some of the colours together. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn - I layered the white on the black for more pop.|
In the second card I stamped the butterfly on an alcohol Ink background and 'fussy cut' the image, placing it on the dry embossed background. It's very easy to fussy cut Yupo paper.

Since I made 2 cards, using the same butterfly stamp, using different themes and methods, I'm entering the Twofer Card Challenge:-
