Butterfly Wishes (PIO#15)

There's new challenge over at Pile It On!!!

This week our sponsor is Inky Impressions

The Inky Impressions Online Store features original digital and rubber stamps, as well as many of your favorite embellishments and papers. You can also play along with their Weekly Challenge.

They are giving our randomly drawn winner $10 to their online shop. Wow!!

Thanks so much for sponsoring our challenge, Inky Impressions! :)

This week we are challenging you to use TULLE or MESH.

I colored my Inky Impression's Butterfly LiLi image with Copic markers. I initially intended to use both Copics and Prismacolor pencils but it worked out with just the markers. I don't have a whole lot of Copics so I've started mixing my mediums.

The designer papers are from DCWV's Birthday Wishes stack. The pendants were part of the paper and fit perfectly. I punched the butterfly with a Martha Stewart punch. The tulle is light pink and I have no idea where I got it, I've had it so long. :) 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
