Just because... - Alcohol ink card

Hello, there!
What I did at first when I came back from biz trip yesterday evening was..., trying to make a card to use the alcohol inks? Haha. No, no! First, I visited Frickr pool where I join. And, oh yes, made a card for joining the 2Peas' Thinking Inking Class Week 5 by Jennifer McGuire, and for the Hero Arts 'website' challenge this week (July 13th - 19th).

This is the card, 'Just because...'
I didn't use the Design Block Butterfly stamp well. But I love this stamp image. So I've been thinking try it again. I remember the appropriate sample card made by Jennifer McGuire at the HA website.
I was so inspired from the card at the Card Gallery section: Many Thanks by Jennifer. (I've been loving this Sunflower Blossom stamp. This sample page has been in my favorites.)

This is a closeup photo around the butterfly.
  I used the method of tapping alcohol ink applicator to make bubbly look (on paper) in part 1 video. On acetate and a clear button in part 2. And, on accent pearls and a paper flower in part 3.

  Tapped the several alcohol inks on DCWV glossy PP. (This time, I didn't use white glossy paper by Ranger for this card.)
The alcohol ink of copper and pearl color for the accent pearls, copper for a button.
Gold, wild plum, and stream for a paper flower. Those added to have them such a rich impression, I think.)

This is another closeup around a paper flower colored with alcohol inks.
This was my first attempt to color a paper flower with alcohol inks.
I enjoyed these creating process so much!
