CPS 123 and Sweet 'n Sassy stamps

You guessed it from the title of my post for today, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is the sponsor this week at Card Positioning Systems blog.
I picked a rather new set with a couple amazing butterflies on it and several great greetings. These were paired with these wonderful Cosmo Cricket papers.
I wanted to be sure to show you a close up of my butterfly and the next photo gives you an idea of how I colored it.
On a piece of plain white cardstock, I dropped some drops of my very newest color of Alcohol Ink along with some Alcohol Blender. The drops of the Blender liquid is what gives the yellow color various shades. When this was dry, I just stamped the butterfly over my colored area. For my finished butterfly, I did add some color to some of the areas with a Copic Marker.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
