Card: Creating a Letterpress Background

This week's challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is to create your own background.


I inked up Spellbinders' "Butterfly" Impressabilities embossing template with Broken China Distress Ink and did a letterpress technique for the tone-on-tone background.  It turned out so pretty - I should do this more often!
