CPS Sponsored by Stampotique


Join us today over at the Card Positioning Systems (CPS) as Stampotique sponsors the sketch below. Play along and you could have a chance to win a grab bag of mounted stamps from Stampotique.

The sketch we are sponsoring is Card Positioning Systems #203


For this card I chose to use Moth Fab on Kraft cardstock and then colored her with my Copic markers.  After I colored her in, I used my Sakura pen to trace over the swirls to make them stand out.  The crystal lacquer was added onto the heart and her eyes to give them a glossy look.  I had yet to use the Catholic Girl Gone Bad sentiment, but thought it would look perfect with this.  I punched out some really small circles of black cardstock and then added on some half-back pearls.

Hope you will head on over to the Card Positioning Systems blog and join us for the chance to win a grab bag of mounted stamps.
