CPS challenge

Really interesting sketch challenge this week on http://www.cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/

I learned a cool new technique this morning on Tim Holtz - Scrapbooking & Rubber Stamping Ideas For Everybody. Use Ranger Alcohol Inks on Glossy Cardstock and then use a can of air (like you use to clean your computer keyboard with) and "blow" the alcohol ink into really cool patterns.

I needed a birthday card for my fil and he loves all of the cards I make anyway (he and mil keep them in an album!) so this will really blow his socks off!

The flourish stamp is Technique Tuesday WhispyGigs. Butterfly is t!m Holtz Grungeboard with Distress Embossing Powder in Mustard Seed and the wings are pop dotted. Ribbon is unknown from my stash.
