Water Color Look with stamp and inks (Copic Markers)

What can I say about my card.... other than I had a wonderful time trying different techniques to get this look.  I don't know about anyone else but i am a huge fan of You Tube videos and spend hours watching all the wonderful artist post that are out there in the art media.  

I was watching different artists make there own stamps out of various supplies and decided to give one a shot using fun foam.

I am going to love making these to use in art journaling!!!!

I stamped these with Simon Says die inks first and used my copic markers and blending pens to give the stamped image some shading for depth.  Using the blender pen with the markers gave the butterflies and background a water color look.  ( Jennifer McGuire you tube channel had a guest artist Dawn Woleslagle who showed all to do this)  

I used some Tim Holtz distress stickles for texture and punched out some little butterflies with liquid pearls on the body and a few spots scattered on card to pull it all together

I know I will be making this card more because it was very relaxing and I was able to make this look like a painting which I find very relaxing and  stress releasing!!!
