Thank You - Copics graduated colour background.

Hi all and welcome to my craft blog.

Today I am posting a card I made using a technique I saw on the Papertray Hints and Tips Youtube channel, using Copics to create a background. This post was prompted by a post I've just seen  here on the blog of a DT colleague Debbi Taylor.

Debbi used Copics to create her background too.

I followed the demo quite faithfully and was careful to choose colours that contrasted and yet complimented each other. The key is in the blending and as Copics are alcohol inks they blend and mix very well. The white wooden butterfly was treated with the same colours and adhered using a foam adhesive. The stamp is an old one and I can't remember where from. The butterfly's  'flight path' was drawn in with a fineliner in black.

colours used were   G99,RV11,V06, V09,YG03
The card was made for of the daily challenges set on the FB page at Craftymess. 

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Your time and comments are appreciated.
