Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Grape Vine cardstock in half to form an A7 card
Step 2:  Stamp the Indigo Cats and Butterfly images on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink, color with Copic markers, cut out close to the outline, edge with the 100 marker
Step 3: Cut a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of watercolor paper, use the watercolor pencils and a wet paint brush to blend the background
Step 4: Place the stencil from the stamp set on the background, use the Spritzer and Copic Markers to add some designs to the background
Step 5:  Adhere the background to the card front
Step 6:  Arrange the cats and butterflies on the background, using foam tape on two cats and the butterfly wings

I love the background and the great instructions on how to recreate it. Didn't know Tuxedo black worked well with Copics. Does it work with Chameleon markers?

Louise said...
