An old picture, some ink and butterflies

My husband's aunt flew in for my mother-in-law's birthday. I had asked her if she could bring copies of pictures of my mother-in-law when she was a child because I wanted to make a book for her. I miscalculated how much time I would actually have to work on the book and will have to make that as a gift and give to her another time. In the mean time, I took a picture of my mother-in-law (when she was a baby) and her grandmother. I painted around the pictures with alcohol ink. I also just gave a touch of a tint on the baby dress. I wanted to add some layers so I framed the picture by cutting a slightly larger square and punching the square with a scalloped corner punch from Stampin' Up. I colored it in Tattered Rose and also went over in Tattered Rose Distressed Stickles. I also added color with alcohol ink, and blending tool. The butterflies were also made by using alcohol ink on glossy paper, and metallic inc and then running the butterflies through the Cuttlebug machine. Finally, I finished the card off with two different size scallop circles and alcohol inc with the wording Look Who's Turning ( ). I am also answering the challenge from Created by Hand Challenge.
Tomorrow a customer used a Tim Holtz Mask to make a Beautiful Tie.

I really like what you did with the background, makes the card more like a painting. Love this car too.
