CAS Faux Chalk Hello Card

I am having so much fun with the faux chalk technique that Sandy Allnock came up with using open stencils, Copics and Copic blender fluid. I created a background on this card with Weathered Wood Distress Ink on a Hero Arts background stamp. Then I colored the outside edges of a butterfly stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils with various Copic markers. I doused a corner of a paper towel with Copic Blender Fluid and pulled the color into the opening in the butterfly stencil. I just love the soft look that creates! I cut a "hello" from Paper Smooches out and cut it again in black and popped that one into the hello opening. I layered the whole piece on an aqua blue card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Sister Act,  Addicted to Stamps and More, and 613 Avenue Create.

I love how you did Sandy's technique. I have been meaning to give it a try too, but too many other irons in the fire of late. Your colors are gorgeous on the one you did.
