'Watercolor' flowers with Copic markers

While practicing the watercolor flowers I learned in class I began to wonder if I could achieve the same look with markers on cardstock. I don't particularly like the look of watercolor paper with white cardstock and I don't have an off white cardstock. This is the result of my experiment and I rather like the look!


This is a tutorial on how I did it.  Click on the picture to make it

 I would love to see what you do if you do try it so send me a link to your blog if you do! It really is easy and you will have a unique image for your cards each time. I had lettered the sentiment but you can just as easily use a stamp.

You made these look great! I took Martha Lever's class last year and painted my heart out. I loved her class. Your copic ones look great.
I've been taking Joanne Sharps Artful Alphabets too!
See you in class! hehe

Your cards are so stylishly delightful. I love the use of white space, to make your flowers pop right off the page. I also love how you incorporated step by step instructions. What a sweetie. I'm your newest follower, please accept my warm invitation to visit and hopefully to follow my blog, too. "Happy Mother's Day, Connie :)
