Copic Various Ink Refills and Backgrounds

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today, and I’m super excited to share a new to me technique with all of you! Todays technique is all about your Copic Refill Inks, and how to create your own dreamy and faux watercolor backgrounds.  Check it out…

First you will need glossy paper and your Copic Various Ink Refills.  I used old glossy photo paper that I had scraps of and it worked perfectly.

Next you will remove the lids of all of them so that you are able to add drops from each color quickly to your paper.  I made sure to keep my lid lined up behind my tube so I could keep them straight and know when to add a new color.

Yes, it looks like a whole lot of nothing but drops… but as you add each color letting them mix as you go you can really see the background form.  Sometimes I would let one layer dry before adding another drop of a different color.  I also used the Colorless Blender Various Ink while the other inks were wet to help spread the color and to create unique ripples.

And here is a picture of it dry and done…

My first intent with the finished piece was to die cut various shapes out of it, but after I saw the finished results I couldn’t bare to cut it so I decided to use it in it’s entirety on my project…

I just love how this turned out!  Other products used to create my card include Sugar Pea Designs, Altenew, and Pretty Pink Posh.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Happy Crafting!

Happy Tuesday everyone… It’s Holly here today and I have a new video and a Super Cute card featuring Your Next Stamp & My Favorite Things!

I started out with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I die cut a panel using the Blueprints 27 die-namics from MFT. Then I die cut the Big Hugs from MFT from the center of the panel. I added a piece of pattern paper from Doodlebug’s new Spring Things 6×6 pad behind the HUGS opening. Then I added an additional piece of pattern paper from the same pack to a White Card base and adhered the sentiment panel.

I stamped some birds from the Your Next Stamp Word Critters- Gardening Birds set using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink and colored them in with the following Copics. BG0000, BG10, BG11, Y17, No, N1, N3, YG01, YG03 & YG25 Then I used the coordinating die cuts to cut them out and I adhered them using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the pattern paper and used the banner from the Blueprint 27 set to die cut it out. I adhered it just under the HUGS with some additional foam tape. For some shimmer I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the birds and some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Check out the vide below for more details on how I created this card.

Hi everyone.. It’s Holly here today! Halloween is just around the corner and I’m loving all the fun Halloween and Fall sets that have been released this year. It makes it really hard to pick a Favorite! Today I’m using the My Favorite Things Frightful Friends and Grave Situation stamp sets.

I started out by cutting two pieces of Neenah Solar White cardstock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Then I die cut one panel using the Pizzaz Pieces Creative Cuts die set from Mama Elephant. I lined the die cut panel up with the other panel and made some pencils marks inside the circle window. Then using some Distress inks in Squeezed LemonadeDusty Concord and Spiced Marmalade I created a background for the window opening. Once the Distress inks were dry I stamped the Fence and Bat images from the Frightful Friends set using some VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I added some Foam tape to the back of the window panel and adhered it over the Distressed panel. Then I adhered both panels to a Black top folding card base.

I stamped the Vampire, Bat and Grass images from Frightful Friends and the Gravestones from Grave Situation sets onto some White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in with Copics. Then I die cut them using the coordinating die sets and my Big Shot. I adhered them with liquid glue and foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment from Frightful Friends onto a piece of White cardstock in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and die cut it using the Avery Elle Pierced Banners Die set. Then I adhered it just behind the Vampire image with some additional Foam tape. I wanted a little extra highlight so I added some white with a White Gel Pen. Super Cute!!

I used the following Copic Sketch Markers:

Vampire: (Cap & Boots) R29, R17, R39, Y23, Y28 (Shirt) C1,C00 (eyes) B00,B000 (Suit) C8,C6, C4, C1 (Skin) E000, E00,E51, E53 (Hair)T8, T6, T5,T3 (Grave Stones) W0,W2,W4,W6, W8 (Grass) YG09,G07,G28.

You are Mermazing!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi everyone .. It’s Holly here today and I have a fun card for you using products from Neat & Tangled. This Mermazing set was a must have when I saw the release it was in. And the Making Waves Die set coordinated perfectly with it for a unique background.

mp6

I started by Die cutting the Making Waves die from some Watercolor Paper and a piece of White card stock. I added some Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress inks to the Watercolor portion to create the waves and the sky. Then I added some water drops and dabbed them off with a paper towel. After the pieces were dry I added them to the White stitched circle with some foam tape. Then I adhered the circle piece to the front of a top folding A2 size card base. I stamped the Mermaid image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I colored it in with Copics. I used BG10, BG11, BG13 & BG18 for the tail. E50, E51, E21 & R20 for the Skin. V12, V15 & V17 for the top and Y13, Y15 & Y18 for the Hair.

mp7

I die cut the image using the coordinating dies and then I stamped the Sentiment banner onto some White card stock as well and used the die cut. I adhered both of them to the center image with some foam tape. Then I created a small banner and stamped “you are” and tucked it just behind the mermaid image.

mp8

I wanted a little touch of shimmer and sparkle to my card so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Mermaid tale and top. And then I added some of the Neat & Tangled Oceans Wave mixed Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today… Have a great Weekend!
