Tim times Ten Stampin' Dymonz Grand Giveaway. - Challenge #5-Coloring w/Copics Card Tag

Okay....Halfway through the challenges @ Stampin' Dymonz Grand Giveaway.  (hehe...) Yesterday I forgot to link my project.....My bad...So I did that first.......So on to the challenge....

Challenge #5 - Cut a tag on the fold  (card tag) and use 2 different color copics(or marker of choice)... on the image. I used Copics since I had them....You also had to use a mat distressed by sanding.

My image is a Vellum embossed butterfly x 2 for a 3D effect . I choose to color both images using a blending technique.  I choose vellum because Copics move easily and blends perfectly on it.  I used four different colors.  3 of the colors were in the same family (purple, violet and Blue violet and Cranium Yellow.  The yellow merely lightens the darker colors).  For the mat I used lightly sanded  glassine paper because it gives the paper a great distressed look.  I used TH Distressed stain (Wild Honey) on the glassine paper.  The glassine paper gives a distressed look if crumbled.  If sanded it shows deeper variations of the color used.(in this case TH Distressed stain-Wild Honey)

Oh Ms Dee this is LOVELY! So was it easy to emboss the butterfly without it tearing? I thought it would be too thin for that! I must try this technique then! I love how your tag came out! Great job!
