Blackberry Spattered Butterflies

I posted this card on my Facebook page already but wanted to share it here, too. It's one of my favorites I've made with the Butterflies Thinlits!

Use an Aquapainter and ink to make these spatters the old-fashioned way. The main butterfly is cut from cardstock vellum, with the smaller layered butterfly cut from Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The gold filament is from Gold Baker's Twine--just unravel what you need! The card needed one other gold accent, so I used the "torn washi tape" thinlit from the Mini Treat Bag set to make a gold foil background for the sentiment. Isn't that a cool shape? I'll be using it more in the future!
