They work well with all sorts of backgrounds too.
Iv'e used a Butterfly stamp on Vellum for this card and distressed the background papers using foils, embossing powders and inks.
I must, must, must go now and start making my samples for my next DeoCafts Demo's this weekend. I'm at Trelawney Garden Centre in Barnstaple on Saturday with Scrapbooking and craft techniques , and Trago Mills, Newton Abbot on Sunday with Card-Making and Jewellery. Hope to see you there if you can make it.
