Sharpies!

Have you seen the current (for a few more hours) Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge? If you like butterflies, or watercolours, or fashion, this one is hard to resist. 




I am still tickled by my discovery of Sharpies+rubbing alcohol+rice paper, and thought it would lend the right effect for this inspiration photo. 




Don't be surprised if you see more of this technique here in the next little while.
Also, how can I resist adding this to Simon Says Stamp's current anything goes challenge? 


Supplies: white and purple cardstock, rice paper, Sharpies, rubbing alcohol, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, pop dot tape Pin It Now!

I really have to try this. I love your butterflies fluttering across the page and the touch of coloured matting.
