Tuesday Tutorial - Copic bleeding

Go check out the great tutorial Cindy did on OWH Stars and Stamps today.
Brief rundown of supplies:
Stamps by Rubber Stampede (circles) and Studio G (hi)
Blue paper by DCWV, pink unknown from stash
Copic Markers
White pigment ink and white embossing powder
Blue organdy ribbon from JoAnn
circle punch from Fiskars
Photo corner punch from EK
Gem by Tulip

I used 50% rubbing alcohol since it's what I had. Cindy recommended 91%. I didn't get a lot of color variation and I wonder if the stronger alcohol would have provided this. I also used a heat tool to speed the drying time instead of being patient!

I thought this was a cool technique and want to try it with paler colors next time.

  1. Hi Kathryn - Love your colors! It's great that you tried this. I don't know, but as you said, it might be that the 50% alcohol is too weak. Also, the effect takes a little time to develop, so you might try letting it dry naturally, at least to see what happens. It's definitely a "science experiment," as one commenter wrote!

  2. What a cool card Kathryn... looks like a fun technique, I might have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing your card ~ Pam
