Another little tutorial...

Happy Friday everyone! I have gotten a few questions on how I made the background on the following card so I decided to make a little tutorial. I hope you enjoy! Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or any steps are unclear. :)

Here is the finished card:
This next step is shown on black paper so you can see the technique. This is what you would do with your small, white center panel that you have just sprinkled with white embossing powder (in the previous step).
*Before heating the embossing powder, use a paint brush to brush away sections of the embossing powder for a distressed look.

Finally, add stitching, butterfly, and adhere panels.
Thanks again for stopping by! See you tomorrow with our next "Inspired by..." stamper!

Jill, I love everything about this card, but especially how u used the orange color above the butterfly to draw the eye upward. What an eyecatching detail!

Did you use 2 different stamps on the background for the small white piece?
