CPS Sketch #99 and a fun layout

You read that title correct - Card Positioning Systems blog is on it's 99th sketch this week! WOWIE!! I have been privileged to be part of CPS from the very beginning and it has been such a fun thing to share with the scrapping/cardmaking community.
Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs. I loved how simple and elegant this branch sprig is and so I kept it simple by using silver embossing powder.
I embossed the butterfly with the same silver embossing powder and colored in the openings with a pink Copic marker. I added just over the pink areas a Glitter 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip. I have said this before, but I love this glitter because it gives a great coat of glitter and still lets the underneath color show through.
And I also wanted to share this simple layout. I used "DOODLE" papers by Rusty Pickle, they come in black and white and the idea is you can add color and doodling to what they have printed. The photo was turned black and white and I used a Magic Splash program to add color back into his uniform.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
