Copic Creations Challenge ~ Colorless Blender Tricks!


Happy Friday!   TGIF.    Time for a new Copic Creations challenge ~ this week we’re focusing on all the fun tricks you can do using your Colorless Blender Pen!    Fun, right?   🙂      And, boy did I have fun ~ talk about blender pen over-kill!  🙂

Our sponsor this week is Pink Cat Studio  . . .  they have THE cutest images around!   This one I’ve used for my card is called Frank ‘n Fairy.   Every time I see it, it just makes me smile … imagine what must be going through this little fairy’s mind when Frank opens the door ~ even in his very cool outfit!!   lol   



Here’s the list of blender techniques I touched on for this card:

  • the bricks
  • Frank’s jeans
  • his tie-dyed shirt
  • his spiffy knit sweater !
  • his face and hands
  • the door jam & door
  • used a stamp soaked in blender solution for the background swirls on the inside of Frank’s home
  • Fairy’s dotted dress
  • her pumpkin …  I think that’s it!

We’ve included LOTS of tutorials to help with this challenge.   I hope you will join us for some blender pen fun.   All the details and the AWESOME creations from the team can be found at the Copic Creations Challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by today.   Hope you have plans for a great weekend!

 … to say HI!  and Happy Saturday to you! 

Isn’t this just the cutest little fairy you’ve ever seen?   She is part of the Enchanted Lily Stamp set by Pink Cat Studio, now available at 7 Kids College Fund!  



The sentiment is computer generated, but there are several VERY cute matching sentiments included in this set from Pink Cat Studio.  I was trying to make mine fit into this week’s Sketch Challenge from SCS.

As I’m sure you know, the latest trend is to add matching design factors into the inside of the card!   Pretty soon, we’ll be doing the back too!!   I think I need a few more hours each day!!   🙂

This was my first time using Pink Cat Studio stamps.  If you’ve never used them before, keep in mind that they are unmounted stamps.  I got some EZ Mount Stamp N’ Stor to add to the stamps, also available at 7 Kids.
