Sending Best Wishes with Butterfly Tag Card

I remember this technique from Jennifer McGuire to coloring the background with black Tombow Pen.

How I made my card:
1. started with stamped the butterfly first to Versamark Clear ink then to the Distress Ink. Then I embossed it with clear embossing powder.

 2. I took black Tombow marker and started to colored my white area of the paper:

3. Here is the finished colored white are with black Tombow marker. In reality the butterfly is shiny because of the clear embossing powder.

 Here is the finished card:


I added Sending Die Cutting sentiment and the Best Wishes Sentiment I stamped on a pink paper to match the ribbon.

  6. Oh, your embossed colourful butterflies are so beautiful, Monika!!!! I love the tilted tag on the dry embossed bg - the script is lovely!!! The pink of the ribbon and the sentiment on the pink, give a wonderful feminine touch to your card!!!! Such a great card, my friend!!!!
    Have a lovely Tuesday!!!!

  7. It looks like colored embossing powder on black. I don't have all colors of embossing powder, so this technique is a great alternative. It makes a wonderful motif for a tag but it would also look great as a background for a sentiment in focus card. I think this is beautiful.

  8. I was surprised to learn that you colored the background with a black marker. This is truly beautiful, and I appreciate the tutorial. Thank you for sharing your beautiful tag with us at Jo's Scrap Shack this week.
