Butterfly Thank You

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week or so. We've had some crazy weather. Last week lots of snow with the store being closed on Wednesday due to poor road conditons then I had to madly prep for weekend classes because I left things to the last minute! Here's hoping I don't do THAT again (but probably will!).
I managed to find a few minutes today to play. These "dandelions" were done of white vellum. I laid the vellum onto the wood mounted stamp and traced the image using my Tombow white gel pen then I colored the image on the back side using my Tombow markers. I think it kind of has a chalk like look which is nice since I am no good at chalks! I stamped the butterflies on Bazzil cardstock and blended with using the indirect Tombow blending technique. The sentiment was stamped using a Tombow marker as the ink so it matches my colored images perfectly! Love that!
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Thanks for stopping by!
