Thank You Card

Hi everyone,

Today I decided to play along with a different challenge blog – Addicted to CAS and the theme was rainbow which is always fun.  You can check out the challenge here .

I haven’t done any copic colouring on acetate for a while so decided to pull out my markers and acetate to create a colourful card.  I used one marker at a time and started with the blue and then worked my way down the acetate with the other colour, overlapping the colours just a little to get a tiny bit of blending.  When you are using copic markers on acetate it is important to remember that you are not going to get the same blending that you get on a porous surface like paper.  I made sure I scribbled my marker onto some scrap paper to get rid of any excess colour that was on the marker tip.  After I had completed my background I remembered that I think this technique works best with the chisel tip end so if you decide to give this a go yourself, it is worth trying out different marker tips to see what works best for you.

When the copic colouring had dried (which doesn’t take long) I turned the acetate over and stamped the frame and sentiment using stazon ink as I think this is best ink to use when stamping on acetate.  I added a frame using a CD marker and then adhered to some white card to keep with CAS look.  A small metal flower added some interest but kept the design simple.

If you have any questions just leave me a comment and I will be sure to reply.  Thanks for stopping by,

Kristy
