Use that ( Colorless) Copic Marker!

Just catching up with some class work for the Clean and Simple Online Card Class.... I was inspired by Day 8 class taught by Dawn. I hardly use colorless blender copic marker. This technique helps to give shades for the stamped image.
016
With an oval diecut, I stamped the flowers over, then I highlighted the petals with the colorless blender. I made this card in the wee hours....I wasn't sure if the stamped image looked "right". But you get the idea..
 Stamps: Papertrey Ink, CAS-ual Flowers Stamps (sentiment)
I did a wrap-up over Virginia's View Challenge. If you haven't stopped over there, here is the link. 
 Hope you have a beautiful weekend!
