First play with the Crafwell eBrush with Spectrum Noir's.

Hello to everyone.  
This card was created for Crafter's Companion IIDT, using my new Craftwell eBrush.   
My DH purchased this for me as a recent anniversary gift, bless him. 
 Having lots of fun with this 
and practicing different techniques, which I will share on future projects.  
This background uses several different Spectrum Noir markers applied with the eBrush and a square of bulap material with blending solution, to make the textured details. 
I have also used some of the fabulous Crafter's Companion, Texture Stamps to create extra dimension.
 I love this mermaid stamp from Sheena Douglass.
