Bella and Butterfly

Welcome! I have another day off and I am in heaven! Just to have a day to work ahead on some card and craft projetcts is a fantastic day to me! The sun has been out and I just love taking a moment to glance out at my back yard. I realized I don't usually have much time to enjoy that!
I have been playing around with fun and inky backgrounds lately! I want to share a card I created using the adorable little stamp called Bella and Butterfly from Wild Rose Studio. This is a card I created for my MarkerPOP Design Team. I love, love, love all the little Bella stamps! This one is no exception!
Copic Markers Used:
- Bella: Vo4, Vo2, V01, V000 with cast on left G40 to pick up grass and on the right I used BG000 to pick up the sky
- Flowers: B000, B02 and a touch of V01, Y23, Y11, R22, R20,
- Grass and Leaves: G28, G40, YG63,
- Butterfly: Y11, Y000, C5
- Sky with clouds: C3, BG10, B000, BG000, Colorless Blender and White Pastel chalk.
I have been obsessed with backgrounds! Yes, it's true. I attended a workshop in Anaheim called Copic Color and Ink Workshop and I have never been the same since. I am going wild coloring different backgrounds on everything in sight! I have been a coloring fool with a silly grin on my face! This card is no exception. I created my own marbleized background designer paper, I created a sky background with clouds and I even tried to incorporate reflected colors from the grass and sky on little Bella.
I used a Copic and Water technique to create a marbleized background for my base layer. I used drops of Copic Various Ink refills that I floated on top of water. It is super subtle but I love the marbleized effect.
I find playing around with backgrounds is a lot of fun and allows me to experiment and learn more about what my Copic markers can do.
I am linking this card with the following challenges:
- Make It Monday - Anything Goes
- No Matter Which Challenges - Anything Goes (must use rubber stamp or digi)
- The Craft Place Challenge Blog Anything Goes
That is all I have for today. I hope this inspires you to put on an apron and maybe some gloves and start playing with all your various ink colors and other ink you may have as well. I hope you have fun!
Don't forget our MarkerPop Challenge #18 is still running through 3/17 and you have time to show us your wonderful creation!
