Use A Pen For Stampotique

The incredibly talented Magda is our hostess this morning at Stampotique so over to her :-)
I always have a pen or pencil with me. Always with notebook full of drawings and doodles. I'm sure not only me! I would love to see a pen in your project. It can be a drawing, doodles or simply some journaling. It might be even a single word. I'm looking forward to see your entries for this challenge!
So here's another page in my chipboard book

The background has been built up with PanPastels and lots of Stampotique stamps (of course :-)  ) The main image is a whacking great Jo Capper Sandon Large Butterfly. This has been stamped onto some alcohol inked gloss paper and also some bendy acetate.
Next came lots of tissue tape highlighted with a white Posca pen, Jo's Papillon Script has been covered in Glossy Accents then put to one side to dry - see no thumb prints this time :-)
The little wooded butterflies have stamped with Fax To Wolfgang
There's quite a bit of height to the butterfly now so goodness knows if the book will shut, but never mind lol. Now time for my border, it's black and white Posca pens - I'm so happy that I've found (to me) the perfect pens - they just go over anything!
On the background I've used

I'm also entering this into the latest PanPastel challenge, which is Pretty Shabby Chic.
Please join in with out pen challenge - usual terms and conditions, just link up and tell us the challenge number - in this case it's SDC 142, and of course no digis.
I hope you like my page, and thanks very much for looking x
