CTD111 Meets SC299





I struggled with the Color Throwdown Challenge this week: Melon Mambo, River Rock, Pacific Point. After seeing Karen's Sketch Challenge on SCS, I decided to tie the colors together in the butterfly image that is retired but a standby fave of mine. I colored it with Copics, then sprayed with an alcohol/Shimmerz mixture so it glistens IRL.
STAMPS: Stipple Butterfly (SU)
PAPER: Blossoms & Butterflies glittered & foiled stack by DCWV, River Rock, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: Arch lattice border punch by MS, Large polka dotted EF (PTI), Copics (YG91, B12, B16, RV23, RV25)
