Delicate Mixed Media Butterfly Card

I have a delicate, very feminine (perfect for my girly girls) card today. I used two kinds of media for coloring this card including Distress inks and pigment inks.

I first smeared the Worn Lipstick pad directly on the paper, brushed water over it, then when it's dry, I stamped Penny Black's text background in pigment ink to get this background effect. For the butterfly, I inked Penny Black's Soft Wings stamp with the same distress ink, spritzed it with water before stamping. The sentiment is by SRM Stickers.
The teal butterfly was die cut using Spellbinders' Wonderful Wings. To color it, I smeared Evergreen Bough on my plastic surface, spritzed it with water, then wiped my butterfly die cut through it. The pretty rose is by Want2Scrap. The sequence was a local find (yay!). Adhering them one by one would be a challenge if I didn't have my handy Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Dodz Small. They're just the perfect size for those tiny embellishments.
I'm entering this to the following challenges: Seize the Sketch (layout), The Shabby Tearoom, Card Mania, Word Art Wednesday, Altered Eclectics, and Vintage Stamping. Have a great day!
