Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #204 Get Inky/Messy

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #204
Chanya is hosting the second challenge of  2018 and  the theme is Inky/Messy This can include messy paint items and  sprays etc. I choose to use ink and a Stampin Up  stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge. The butterfly is from a Marianne Designs die (LR0114).  I added some of the circles that fell out from the butterfly die cut onto the card face. The ink and paper are Stampin Up's Pacific Point.  I used Memento Black ink for some of the stamped  'blobs'. I used a background stamp for the scratchy looking background paper.

Please come and join in the fun, always great to get a bit messy.
