Thinking Spring : )

I made a quick CAS card for a Thanks card, and decided to use a torn edge so the card could be entered into the MFP Challenge for the week- Torn Edge.
  I stamped the butterfly with Versamark on the background (remember when we did that for everything?).....  I added Sakura Stardust gelly roll pen for some sparkle to the butterfly. I inked the image with Distress inks, huffed on the stamp and impressed the image. I sponged a little ink on the edges and tore the edge. the Butterfly is colored with Distress markers then I lightly watercolored over the top to mix the color. I also added sparkle to the butterfly.
  I took one more MFP image that is all Oriental Kanji- and just inked one little corner and used Antique Linen ink and lightly added Kanji to the mail panel and to the background.
