Copic "Watercolor"

Pin It

Hi! We just enjoyed a wonderful long weekend here in BC! A ONE LAYER, simple card for you today showcasing one of my favorite things....copics! You wouldn't think that flower is done with markers...well it is done with copic marker various ink refills and my waterpen filled with blender solution. 

I love the pretty watercolor looking results of this technique....but first I need to describe how I got all that texture!

I did my stamping first, using "Birthday Chalkboard Greetings" and  "Delicious Birthday" from MFT! I stamped them in the Black Licorice Hybrid ink. Now....for the texture. I prepared the die cut sandwich for embossing on my machine. I then laid down my "Rose with Overlay" Die-namics, A piece from the "Blueprints 9" for the sentiment and then laid over all of this the "Grid" stencil. I ran it through my machine a couple of times to ensure deep impressions. 

For the copic "watercolor" I used YR68, YR31 and R05 Various inks. 

Are you signed up for a Copic Certification or Workshop? Some new locations were just added....Vancouver BC and Calgary are for my fellow Canadians :)

Check out the full list HERE on my updated Copic page. Hope to see you soon!


 

Lil' bits of ribbon

 I decided to play along with today's clean and simple challenge over on SCS! It has been a LONG while since I have had the chance! We were challenged to use some of our ribbon bits and scraps to create a project.

 
I created this project for my sweet little niece....that needs a little hug as she broke her arm yesterday. Poor thing!

This whole tag is ribbon! I added adhesive on a piece of cardstock and then lined up the ribbons and then put it through my die cut machine with the "Pierced Tag STAX Die-namics". This made a nice clean edge to the ribbon....so nice! 
The sweet little pure innocence image is "Sending Big Hugs" from MFT! I even added a little ribbon to her skirt :) I colored her up with my copic markers....these little gals are always fun to color!

Speaking of coloring....Check out my updated class page for Certifications and Workshops coming your way!
    

Copic Marker Classes with frosting on top....

Happy Monday! Lots of updates to share with you today!

 
First up is this little sweetie called "Sweet Birthday Wishes" from MFT....she is a new release for July!

I stamped her directly on kraft cardstock and then paper pieced everything except her hair and cupcake base. The papers are from Melissa Frances.

I colored her up with my copic markers...being sure to add shadows and dimension to her paper pieced dress.

The sentiment comes from a new set from MFT called "Delicious Birthday"....PERFECT for all things BIRTHDAY!

UNDER the weather?

Pin It
 Fun little technique card to show you today....and a little step by step to walk you through my process. This is very much a ONE LAYER card.

Let's walk through it.....
 I cut the "Layered Umbrellas" Die-namics from a post it note and placed it on my card base.
 I then masked off the edges of that umbrella with more post it notes, going right to the bottom of my card.
 I then inked up the "Typewriter Text" background with some Spearmint Hybrid ink and inked up my card front.
 I then did a base of COPIC airbrushing with BG13 still leaving my mask in tact.
 I then laid the "Raindrops" stencil over my cardfront and taped it down. Airbrushing with BG18. I moved the stencil to add some more raindrops and then airbrushed again.
Here is a look at the very "One layer" nature of this card.  For the umbrella itself....I painted with a little grapejelly and grapesicle refill and a bit of shimmer mist. I cut the remaining pieces from steel grey cardstock.

The sentiment is from the "Blue Skies Ahead" set (altered a little to fit my space).

Thanks for stopping by!
