Background and Twine

Hello crafty peeps, the challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown, team A challenge #144, is being sponsored by The Twinery. The theme is create your background. I created my background with two different alcohol inks, lake mist and sandal, blended them together to get this color. After that, I embossed with the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder. I used the negative space for the butterfly
Supplies: scrap paper, glossy paper, twine, memeory box vine die, prima flowers, tim holtz embossing folder, brick, elizabeth craft butterfly die, queen & co bling.

Now... isn't that an innovative way of using the negative portion of the punched piece, and a beautiful way to use twine? Wow! Looks fabulous, Berni.
