 Favorite technique... of course it's gonna be Copics! And I also went went with a favorite image which is anything with a kitty cat! This cute little kitty stamp was released this summer and I had to add it to my collection! 
 Here are the Copics I used for the image. I stamped the cat with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut it out using Spellbinder's Nobel Rectangles. I airbrushed with B12 and W4 while the image was still in the die. I also forgot to color in the butterfly in this picture... so I grabbed an orange marker and filled in. 
Here's the up close... under the main image I used foam tape to pop it up. I curved the sentiment and popped it up too. Fun little image for sure!
