Acrylic block backgrounds

Hey all, I hope everyone is doing great, and enjoying the holidays. I am waiting for Monday, the schools will reopen, and hopefully life will get back to normal routine.
I am up with  2cards, both have same technique. I had used the acrylic block stamping on both.

The first one up is made using 3 distress inks - spiced marmalade, dried marigold, and squeezed lemonade. I dabbed the pads on the aryclic block and sprayed some mist, and pressed the paper against it. Once dried, I added the die cut butterfly, and stamped the sentiment on a black paper using white pigment ink. The sentiment is from HLS - mix mash set. Added a few sequins to finish off.

HLS CASE the designer
I was inspired by the colors, and the butterfly here.

HLS Anything Goes
Used the sentiment

Share Joy Challenge
Going with both sketch and theme

Butterfly Challenge
has used some yellow and a butterfly on my card

X is for Xanthine

The second card is also made using the same technique, here I had used fired brick and barndoor inks to create the background. I added a shimmery green ribbon, and also added a diecut flower and few leaves, and the sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
