Butterflies and Hexagons challenge 25

Hi there.  After missing the last butterfly challenge I thought I would be early this time around.  So Mrs. A has chosen hexagons together with the butterflies.  I thought I would try a new technique this time (new to me anyway).
I used my emboss folder to make this watercolour effect background.  I inked up the emboss folder on the side where the name appears with TH distress inks broken china and bundled sage.  Spritzed the folder with water and laid the watercolour paper on top and pressed the ink into the paper.  Left it to dry naturally.  The stamps are from SU and Clearly Besotted.  Added a few pearls and some glitter glue.  I am quite pleased with the background and will use this technique again.  Thanks for looking.
