Thanks Sabrina for bringing back that great technique. I had forgotten just how much fun it was. I have been digging deep into my stamp stash lately and to-day I found this great butterfly from Artful Stamper (2006)! Yikes!!! Instead of using a gel pen (which I do not have very much luck with) I decided to use my ball stylus and white acrylic paint. So much easier and it makes perfect circles (keeps my OCD happy!). My dear close friend Martha provided the lace punch and I decided to use a frame folder that hasn't seen the light of day since the Beatles broke up!! LOL Thanks for looking..have a Rainbow Day!

Ah, yes - I think a stylus and paint gives great effect, though I'm glad to say that I've found a brand of pen that works for me (mostly, not so good on the waxy finish of pencils). Your circles adorn your flourished butterfly beautifully, and the decorative punched border picks up and echos them so perfectly.

Beautifully done and SO fun to pull out things that haven't been used in a while! - one of the sets I used today was circa 1994!
And were't you smart to use the end of a stylus and paint - Love the look!

Wait, give me a minute to catch my breathe...I laughed out loud about your remark about the Beatles! :D
Ok, back in control...I didn't think I wanted to try this technique (although I've enjoyed many of the projects), but I think the beautiful simplicity of this card is drawing me to this technique. You chose a lovely image too!
