Marker Magic

I found this technique that I have never seen before on Pinterest and gave it a try! The tutorial clearly stated that regular cardstock was used but I thought watercolor paper would be even more awesome! Boy, was I wrong! After four tries, I gave in and used regular cardstock with wonderful results. I took one of my acrylic blocks and used markers to color three stripes directly on the block, spritzed the block lightly with water, and applied it to my white cardstock. Isn't this an interesting look? I added embossed butterflies that I "decorated" with copper Stickles for the bodies/antennae and stamped a simple sentiment. Hope you like! Thanks for stopping by!!
