STAMPlorations Birthday Blog Hop - Reminder Three!

STAMPlorations has turned a year old and is celebrating with a blog hop and new release. Today I am up with my fourth and final card :) Don't forget to hop over to win a lot of prizes. You have until Wednesday, July 2, 11:55 p.m. PDT (GMT -700) to comment here and on my fellow designers' posts for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on the STAMPlorations blog on Sunday, July 6.

I have my forth and last card (actually not last, I can make tons with set lol) to share using the same set VIGNETTE: Retro Mod Shapes set  here's what I created... 
I am so inspired by the beautiful card by Donna Mikasa that I had to CASE it. To make this card, I inked the card base, then I stamped the images with water. As distress ink n water reacted, it gave this result. This is one technique that looks awesome and I ought to do more of it :) Finally, I did some gold embossing of the sentiment, added a die cut and a gold embossed vellum butterfly to finish my card.
I am entering this card to the following challenges -
