Tuesday with Tara {take 247} Grungy Butterflies

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a throwback post that features some fun, grungy butterflies that fit our Day 12 theme for our Random Acts of Cardness: Flutterby.  I hope you’ll play along and show us cards with flying things!

Here’s my throwback card from 2016…

Today’s card is inspired by Tim Holtz again, this time a more recent project, the 12 tags of 2016 – March.  I changed things up a little bit as I’d already played around with a background and decided it would look good behind a grungy butterfly frame 🙂

My card background started as an oops… I was using black gesso and dribbled some on the kraft 5×7.  I then decided to just dry brush (aka clean off my brush!) on the card and it turned into a fun looking background perfect for this image!

Have a creative week!

Inky hugs,

Tara
