Everyday Butterfly

Happy Fall everyone!
Just uploading my Tim Holtz- September tag for the 12 tags of 2016 remix.  i must have watched the video at least 50 times.  this was not a simple or easy effect to pull off.  my first one too light.  The next one I pressed too hard and didn't  make sure to use a clean area to wipe. Big mistake!!   I kinda liked the car though.

The third time was the charm.  I really liked the effect of the 2 tone swiggle background.  I put the alcohol ink (Indigo and Teakwood) in 2 long stripes each on my applicator and wiggled as I placed it on the Yupo.  I got these thick lines of color.  Then I inked my butterfly stamp from the Perspective cms213 set from Stampers anonymous with Ranger Archival ink Potting soil  stamped my image and gently wiped using the clean area of my felt.  This is what I came up with.
