Blossoming Butterflies

 Had some fun getting inky today!  "Ghosting" is a technique I haven't used in a very long time. After using Color Bursts to make the background, I spritzed plain water onto a stencil (you can see the images on the top left and bottom ride hand sides of the card), but I added a little clorox to the water when I stamped the Stamploration butterfly images.  And, hey, I actually made a one layer card which are always a challenge for me :)!

Thanks to these challenges for the wonderful inspiration:
