First Copic Card


Not feeling the pink/red/hearts Valentine mojo tonight, I opted to make a general love card with earthy papers and a squirrel stamp and sentiment from Hampton Arts. It ended up a fall card, a bit by accident, but I still like it.

It's the first card I colored entirely with Copics! The squirrel is colored with W3, the acorn with E31, and the sentiment with Y17. I started small. I'm working on shading but the colors I have in my collection don't all have blending buddies yet. Perhaps I'll be able to add more soon! Also, I need to get an inkpad that doesn't smear. SU Basic Black is all kinds of runny on this. :(

Cards shipped to OWH (as of 10/20/11): 1642

  1. Kathryn, this came out great. I love it because it's non traditional. That is such a nice change every once in a while. Your coloring is great. You could be hooked now though. Those Copics are a whole new addiction. Just a quick note that your probably already know, Momento ink is the best for Copics or use Versafine Black and then quickly emboss it with black or clear embossing powder. The paper is also very important. SU does bleed a little bit. The best I found is Cryogen white #89. I get mine from www.papertemptress.com. Gina K Designs heavy weight white is also good. Michaels now sells some Copics and they let you use their 40% or 50% off coupons. Well I'll be waiting to see more of your copic creations.
