Get Crazy with Markers!!

Hello dear followers! Today I am bringing another card I created for our weekly challenge at the Friday Mashup blog. Tara is our hostess and her challenge is to create a project using markers in any way you can imagine, and if you want, mash it up with texture. 

I started with a 4" by 5 1/4" of Raspberry Ripple which I embossed using the Fancy Fan Folder (127751). The DSP panel is 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" from  In Color Designer Series Paper Stacks  2012-2014 (126910). The vertical panel is a 4 1/2" by 4 1/4" piece of Pool Party Coordination cardstock, which I embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder (127821). I cut the panel where the butterfly lies out of Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003). I stamped the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri ( W123757 C 123759) with Stazon (101406) on watercolor paper, painted it with In Color markers 2012-2014 (126856), and cut it out with the Elegant Butterfly punch (127526). The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets, Loving Thoughts ( W 125843 C 125845). Hope you get inspired enough to participate in the challenge.
