OK, YES, the blending brushes still have my attention! This time, the base for the blending was Bristol card stock.
I colored the image with Copic markers, then let those colors dictate the colors for the background blend. From the bottom: Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet.
