Butterflies and Tim Holtz Challenges

I started off thinking about the Butterflies challenge at Craft Room Challenge then I was trying to make a tag using a Tim Holtz technique for Dragon's Dream TIO  I have only just started out on my Tim Holtz journey so had to follow a video to see how to do a background with Distressed ink and water spritzer. What a mess I made everywhere but I think I got something that looks like the demo in the end.

My dream would definitely to be as free as a butterfly but I would like to live a bit longer than they do :)
