new papertrey challenge!

The Make It Monday challenge at Capture the Moment this week is to color with your Copics on an embossed image or sentiment...
Needless to say, this made me a bit nervous.  There are so many rules about what you CAN and CAN NOT touch the Copics ink tips to that I kinda freaked.

But here is my card.  I heat embossed the Papertrey sentiment and the butterfly stamped image from my stash. Then I highlighted the butterflies in flight with my markers.  I noticed a bit of a white residue left on my marker tips so I cleaned them thoroughly to avoid any gumminess or problems next time I use them.  I would suggest always cleaning them if you are in doubt about where those tips have been!


I like the soft color it added to my butterflies.
And it gave me an excuse to use some of the Prima flowers a friend gave me recently!
(Thanks, Jennifer!)
