As I was browsing for alcohol inks I found Tim Holtz video on how to create various background. Since I didn't have alcohol ink I tried it with waterproof drawing ink.
I used drawing ink and blending ink on glossy card to create these backgrounds.
For the green card....first layer the Memorybox texture shine stencil , apply the the blending ink.On top of it use the drawing ink to get that stenciled look.
Once it dried I stamped the images with Archival Ink.
Punched the butterflies with Martha Stewart Punch.
For the pink card I used Heroarts Script stamp.
I wanted to have a see through butterfly so I stamped and embossed on a OHP (acetate) sheet with Sizzix stamp and die set.
With Jewelry wire I made the word "Cherish".
(the shades of green and also the graded pink flower are my source of inspiration).
