Copic Creations ~ “Other” Paper


Yay.  Time for a new Copic Creations challenge!    This week we are featuring coloring on “other” papers with Copics.   Quite the challenge indeed!    I used coldpress watercolor paper for this image.    I love the texture of watercolor paper, unfortunately, it does soak up ALOT of your Copic ink ~ although blending is VERY smooth on this type of paper.    

This gorgeous image is from our SUPER sponsor for this challenge, Stampavie.    The image is called Bernadette Admiring the Spring Flowers.   I thought the sentiment from PTI was perfect since, as you can see, there are two tiny bees buzzing about!   🙂



The DP is from the Basic Grey kioshi 6×6 paper pad.   I’ve used Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Deckled Rectangles and Ribbon Tag Trios 2 dies for this card.  The pearl flower sticker accent is from Zva Creative ~ Long Flourish Pearls, which I’ve cut and applied to each side.   The sentiment is from my favorite PTI set ~ Flower Garden Sentiments.



I hope you will join us for this challenge ~  all the details and the ALWAYS awesome Design Team creations can be found on the Copic Creations Challenge blog!
