CAS Mix Up September Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge!
Check out the Top Picks from August's Stencil Monoprinting challenge HERE.

One of my favorite techniques is to ink my stamps with markers.  With all the stamp positioning tools available, this is easier than ever. You can add one color ink to one section, stamp and ink up another section with a different color.  It's the perfect technique for flowers, birds and butterflies, but 
don't limit yourself to them.  I can't wait to see your mini masterpieces!
