A windy challenge

Happy Thursday! I think it's been ages since I played in a daily SCS challenge. Although I do visit their forums, I rarely check out the challenge forums there anymore. Today I saw on twitter that their challenge was "got wind" and since I really wanted to make something I decided to play along there.

I saw an amazing card on pinterest a while ago, and really wanted to recreate the background. The designer used a stencil on her card. I do not have any stencils (yet), so I thought I'd try this background using a versamarker and some embossing powder.
I randomly drew lines with the versamarker over my white card stock, then used clear embossing powder to emboss. I then sponged on some broken china and peeled paint distress inks onto the card and wiped a black ink pad across the edges. The kite is from the set Take Flight by Whimsy Stamps. I used the matching kites die set to cut it out.
I thought it needed something extra so I added the glittered butterflies and some sticky rhinestones.

I am really not so sure I like how this turned out...might have to try this technique again sometimes and use thinner versamark lines.

Besides the challenge at SCS I am going to enter my card to a few more.
