First go with distress inks.

This is my first attempt with distress inks,i used a sheet of patterened paper, then i stamped butterflys randomly with versamark.Covered with gold embossing powder and heated,
i applied the distress inks with the blending stamp thingy!.
I highlighted   the butterflys with a clear gelly roll pen.I cut a piece of mirri board and corners,then put my doo hickey flowers on which i used the said inks on.Also die cut the buuterfly then sponged the inks on while it was still in the die.Handmade the sentiment and attached with gold brads.Please tell me what you think? good or bad thanks.
