Butterflies and bike riding

I wanted to play along with the Colour Q combo for this week so I pulled out a brand new set of stamps I just picked up from Tim Holtz. 
 I love the design of these stamps so I picked this set. It has something for Valentines day, Easter and Fourth of July not to mention other holidays.  I was pretty sure this butterfly would fit that color combo well.  The banner and sentiment are from Paper Smooches.
 The background is a stamp from Fun Stampers Journey, I just didn't ink it thoroughly so it looks a little distressed.  The butterfly is colored with Copic markers and that yellow accent is punched with a Martha Stewart anywhere punch.  I added some Glossy Accents on portions of the butterfly.
 Here is the Colour Q combo.
This also fits the Addicted to CAS Summer challenge.
 I also have several new stamps from Hero Arts so I sat down and did a whole bunch of playing.  I'll be showing off more and more of that playing along the way. 
I used the Brush Strokes set and just stamped randomly.  I used this little strip for a background for the bicycle stamps.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
