I do love my inks and backgrounds as I expect most of you know. I have been having another wonderful day of play at Sir Stampalot only this time I have been playing with copic pens.
Sorry Anna, but I haven't been using them to colour in so maybe it won't count. I promised my friend Anna that I wouldn't get in to copics, but I didn't promise not to try them out.
I caught a tutorial on using copics direct on your stamps and this seemed much more me so I thought I would give it a try using Janice's pens.
I think you will agree that the effect is really quite nice. The floral panel on this first card was actually a way of salvaging an image that I didn't particularly like.
It was a bit blurred and so I added some distress ink and then stamped and clear embossed the image again over the top.
The floral panel on this card is created the way the tutorial suggested by using the copics direct on the stamp and then spritzing with alcohol blending solution before stamping the image.
The colours bleed together slightly due to the blending solution and by using glossy card stock it certainly does give a nice bright image.
The panel that it is layered over has been created using alcohol inks with a Hero Arts stamp white embossed over the top.
Both cards are completed using cuttlebugged paper and card. Pearls, brads and ribbon are the perfect final embellishments.
I hope you like the cards I certainly enjoyed making them.
Must get to bed now as I have my Metal Embossing classes tomorrow (Thursday).
