Background created by placing a stencil on manilla card stock and applying Picket Fence Distress Stain over it, then dried. Once dry, it acts as a resist to the other colors of Distress Ink that I then applied. Added a bit of Archival black inked script here and there for interest and the butterflies ( K and Company)

Alcohol inks on glossy paper , the die cut from Poppy Stamps
I stamped the butterfly is black archival permanent ink. Then turned it over and painted the outline with Alcohol inks that I dropped onto craft sheet and picked up with a paintbrush. The white is Snow Cap Mixative, I wasn’t sure that would work but I like the effect
Background done with Distress Inks, wrinkled,water flicked and dried, wheat sheafs done with antiqued Bronze and Tarnished Brass Distress paints sprayed with water
It’s nice to make one background piece and get two cards from it. I like the simplicity of these.
Used a Memory Box die (grand Madison Window) for the window, blended Distress inks for the scene, added a stamp from the Serene silhouettes set from Stampin up. The sentiment is a Heartfelt Creations one, the font is so nice!
