I combined it with this week's Mojo Monday 489 sketch.
I wanted to dress up the Pansy Purple medallion I cut out, so I decided to use my brand new Distress Oxide ink to stamp a background. After stamping, I spritzed it so it would oxidize, and quickly dried it with my heat gun. After that, I stamped the butterfly over it with platinum pigment ink.
The Wednesday challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to use more than one die or punch. I opted to make a pink ombre panel using a loop punch that I layered. I stamped the sentiment and used the corresponding die to cut the banners, and I cut the purple medallion out with a Spellbinders die.
