Tombow 100 day celebration / Color in a picture is like

Sunday September 1, 2013
 
I was asked by Tombow to participate in the "100 Day's of Tombow" and they sent me the color markers/ retro, Irojiten / vol.6 light grayish color pencils and runner/dot adhesive.  I love these products. I already use the Tombow runner, not this one but a smaller one for those tight places that a ATG can not do. I love this runner and the option for a dab of adhesive or a full run.
Tombow has been creating innovative products for the past 100 years.
They are raising money for the Council for Arts Education, a national nonprofit dedicated to promoting and supporting art education and quality art programs nationwide. I am so happy to be a part of this awesome program.
 

So this is the card I made using the above products from Tombow.. (of course you know it's all held down using the Tombow runner.) believe me it is and it's holding strong.
I used the Retro color Markers to color the sentiment. I like that the pens are nice a juicy and gave me time to color the COLOR in separate colors and then do the rest of the sentiment and still stamped good (of course I huffed on it) and the colors are so vibrant.  I then  stamped the butterfly in Memento ink and used the Irojiten color pencils to color the butterfly. The colors blend wonderfully and cover really well. I will have to try some of the other volumes. There are 9 volumes.
I then used a shimmer mist in couple of colors to spritz the background to give some depth. I used stickles in various spots to give a little shimmer.  Tombow, Thanks so much for letting me participate in this awesome 100 day celebration.

A beautiful butterfly Billie, it looks as though it could fly off the page.

I'm not sure it fits our theme at Allsorts though which is for the focal element to be a sentiment or quote, but thanks for sharing.

I was immediately drawn to your butterfly, it is stunning and then your quote is perfect! I am going to have to use it one of these days!
I found you through the MIM Link Party where I am also partying, would love it if you'd stop by too.
