Easily Embellishing your paper

I was excited to see this paper in the Design Team kit! It was black and white and had this great scroll design on it! I knew right away I would be pulling out my Copic markers. I used a caribbean blue green sea color Bazzill cardstock which matches one of the borders from another paper in the DT kit (used on the second page of this layout) as my inspiration and chose a similar Copic color and a pale blue to blend. For those of you that use Copic markers, this is surprisingly great paper for blending!! --An added bonus!!
Here's a close up of the completed coloring above and below is the completed two page layout. You could really use your Copic markers to embellish any scrapbook paper. The markers are transparent so you can slightly alter (or significantly alter by layering your color) any paper of any color! I hope you find something creative to do with this fun paper!

Great technique! I am going to use it on my art journal page-oh & I have the same paper, what a coincidence!
