Big Love for the Background Butterfly

Background stamps are not a big part of my stamp arsenal, their size makes for a bit of a challenge when it comes to centering or making sure the entire image gets inked well onto the paper.  But I am falling in love with the butterfly background stamp- Swallowtail.  The image is so big and beautifully detailed.  It looks real when you give it some color and it looks vintagey when you stamp it in a dark neutral tone.  I've seen some awesome cards made with this stamp, but I wanted to come up with a piece of decor.

Baker's Tips:
To get the Crumb Cake card stock texture, wet your hands and crumble the card stock into a ball.  Flatten out, and repeat until you get the desired wrinkleness.

Cut the framelit before you emboss, this way your texture doesn't have to get squished in the Big Shot.  Use a brayer in Marina Mist ink to get the color on the raised design.

Lightly sponge the flowers and butterflies from the jumbo wheel in Tangerine Tango and Marina Mist to make them pop just a little on the background.

The third "button" is actually Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon twisted and rolled into a spiral onto the circle shaped shaker frames.
