Zoo Scrapbooking Pages using Copics to create the photo background

Hi crafting buddies, hope you are all well.

This is a scheduled post hopefully I have it right this week, when I snuck on at work to check last week, big flap on when it wasn't there, I had only set it for P.M. LOL!
Today for my inspiration over at the Mad for Markers Store Blog I would like to show you how I made my own backgrounds for the photos to match the Bo Bunny papers I have used on the following scrap pages, just looove these papers, just perfect for these photos of Rosanna and her friend Karly taken last July at Werribee Zoo.

Sorry for the quality of the photo must have taken 12 shots had to take the photo back off and this was the best I could get, think it must be the white lol!  As you can see I coloured around the edges and created a two tone effect

I then went around the edge with the marker to take away the white edge, I usually use a marker on the photos too especially after using a corner punch.  This photo was tricky camera in one hand, marker and paper in the other lol!

I usually use a marker on the edges of the photos too especially after using a corner punch, like on this photo with round edges. Just love this photo!
