So Suzy Alcohol Ink butterflies

Hi Everyone,

this gorgeous butterfly is from the new So Suzy Stamps release. I was planning on turning it into a Monarch, but it did not quite work out that way.

My stamp supplies:

I made myself a mask and stamped on Yupo paper.

I heat embossed the butterflies with clear embossing powder.

Started to dolor them in with alcohol inks

Kept adding more, but some of the green moved outside the outlines. So I added more green on the outside, but in the end did not like it. 

 So I took a mini mister that I had filled with rubbing alcohol and spritzed it. I held the  paper upright, so the diluted ink started to run toward the bottom.
Kind of cool, I thought.

Wanted a bit more color, so I added pink splatters.

I heat embossed the sentiment onto some wood paper in white. Added it to the card with foam tape.
One tip: Be careful, when heat embossing Yupo - it is not paper, it is plastic and warps fairly quickly.

And looks what's coming up:

Happy Stamping!

This card is so pretty and the way you used the alcohol inks is great! I just ordered my first alcohol inks and can't wait to use them especially after seeing your card. Thanks for playing with us at AAA Cards.

A case of lemons into lemonade, Cornelia. The running inks look fabulous behind the gorgeous butterflies.
