A Copic Heart Card
Article Courtesy Scrapjazz.com: by Patter Cross
Copic Markers are fun to use in many ways and on many creations. Today, I thought we would look at how to create a fun card using Copic Markers. So, let’s get started!
First, choose a stamp image that is good for coloring. I chose this great stamp from Memory Box Co. The multiple flowers make it easy to color each flower differently. I chose colors that matched my patterned paper. I stamped the image in Memento London Fog and then colored in each flower starting with the darker Copic colors in the center. After coloring the center, I then worked my way out with the lighter Copic marker colors, covering and blending as I went.
After coloring the image, I cut it out, inked the edges, and then I added some Gunmetal Stickles to the center of each flower. After the Stickles dried, I put together my card, and here is how it turned out:
papers: X-Press It, Memory Box Brioche, Memory Box Licorice, Memory Box Licorice Distressed Dots
stamps: Memory Box Daphne Heart E1422, Memory Box Just a Note B1053
embellishments: Tim Holtz bracket die, hand-dyed Hug Snug, sewing machine
I chose to use an everyday sentiment stamped in Memento tuxedo black so that I could mail this card to anyone for any occasion. All-occasion cards are always great to have on hand. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you will give it a try. Images like this are great for practicing your Copic coloring skills. Enjoy!
