I started with Crumb Cake card base that is 11 x 4 1/4 inches, scored at 5 1/2 inches, and background stamped in Crumb Cake with the Bella Toile stamp set, stamped off first for a more subtle look. Then I dug through my scrap bin and found a piece of Whisper white that was 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches and created the background. I've done the same technique with water color paper and an aqua brush, but I wanted to try with the Stampin' Up! markers. I used Basic Grey, Midnight Muse, Island Indigo, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party. I just colored across the paper with the wide end of the marker, slightly blending the colors together. I stamped the sentiment from the Mr and Mrs stamp set with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, and cut it with the Apothecary Accents Framelit. I added the butterflies cut and embossed with the Beautiful wings Embosslit for a bit of fun.
Thanks for looking!
