Every Bit of Wonderful

Some of the recent Gelli prints aren't particularly suited as backgrounds for my style of cards but used as accents, they rock.  I used one to cut out the flowers here.  Reminder to future self:  use either 80lb or deli paper for the prints as the 140lb used here was a pain to fussy cut.  I used the Copic airbrush to create a quick background with a great fade.  So much easier than sponging for me.

I'm entering this in CAS Mix Up August, AAA CAS #121 Friendship

The Details:  Ranger Dyan Reaveley Everything's Rosy, Simon Says Stamp Uplifting Thoughts, Memory Box Dancing Butterflies, Copics (YG01 and 03), Doodlebug Washi, Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Archival Jet Black, Clarity Chrysanthemum Stencil, Liquitex Acrylics
