Copic Background and Silhouettes

Here is a great technique and  it's really simple, just color in the blocks with Copic markers and drop blending solution onto the panel.  I then stamped on the following silhouette images from Biblical Impressions: 35708 (437) - Phlox, 35715 - Large and Sm Gilias, 36601 - Thinking of You

The butterflies were punched using two Martha Stewart punches and I embossed them using a metal ball stylus and folded paper towel for cushion. I score the wing line on the front, flip it over and emboss between the lines and the outer edge and also the center body. They are attached to the card with Aleene’s tacky glue.

The sentiment panel was created with Spellbinder Petite Oval Nestabilities and a QuicKutz label die which I cut in half. I glued them together and to the card.
