Zentangle Butterfly

Cropstop currently has several different Zentangle stamps in stock, and I just love all the detail there is them. Today I'm showcasing the beautiful Zentangle Butterfly stamp set from Woodware.

For step by step instructions on creating this card: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog.
 I actually did two different variations of the butterfly -- one with the lighter colors on the outside of the wings and one with darker colors. The second one is also embossed with UTEE to create a glossy effect. I think I like the first one better -- which do you prefer?
To create a multicolored sentiment I inked it up with three colors of Distress ink, spritzed with water, and stamped it on the inside of my card.
Supplies and Tools:
Embossing: Midnight Black Embossing Powder, UTEE
Inks: Ken Oliver Color Bursts (Fuchsia, Lemon Yellow, Tangerine), Distress Inks (Black Soot, Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade), Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento), Versamark Watermark (Tsukineko)
Paper: Watercolor Cardstock
Tools: Cuttlbug, Splatter Brush (Tim Holtz), Small Paintbrushes
Stamps: French Market (Tim Holtz), Zentangle Butterfly (Woodware)
