Friday at The Outlawz!

It's another Copics/Promarkers challenge over at The Outlawz!! 
Today the theme is Valentine/Anniversary/Friendship - kind of love in general so plenty of opportunity to come up with something to join in with us.
There's also an optional tutorial (done by yours truly) on a colour block blending technique with Copics which I had seen on Pinterest  - this is actually one of my pins that I have done!!  Anyway this card is done with one of my digis available here - LilyPink Designs @ Can You Digi It  and I used the colour blender technique for the background heart.



The colour blending technique basically involves using the Copic colourless blender and dripping it onto your Copic coloured areas - very simple and effective.  Different effects can be achieved by varying the amount of blender you use and the initial design of your coloured area. 
The tutorial can be found on the Copic/Promarkers page here at The Outlawz

I am entering this in the following -

Thanks so much for popping in - hope you have a great weekend :)
