Faded Layers CC2C #4

Nothing like a deadline to get ya inky in a hurry! I had a project in mind to work on today, and realized I don't actually own the die I planned on using- oops! Guess I'll borrow from a friend and do that tomorrow! Tonight, I'm squeaking in to play along with CC2C Challenge 4: faded layers! Here's what I created... It's a work in progress (to be transformed into a card), but the base is done in time for my deadline- with 9 minutes to spare!  ;)
I finished my stamped image with some Distress Markers for quick details on the butterflies and inked up some floral ribbon with Distress Stains to finish it off. I'm loving the Spring Seasonal Distress- it's my palette for this tag, with the addition of some Brushed Corduroy Distress!

I used the "faded layers" technique as it's written in A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2 by Tim Holtz... Adding a few tweaks here and there :). Lots of great tutorials in the book!

p.s. see the finished card here
