Copics and backgrounds


Hi there. I have been taking the Online Card Class – Copics Markers for Card Makers and have really been enjoying learning new ways of using my Copics. I don’t have a ton of Copics, but I am trying to get more mileage out of what I have. For this card I was playing around with creating a brick background as taught by Sandy Allnock on Day 9.

I was going to mount the doggie panel onto a white card panel, but it looked too plain so I went to town with Pumice Stone distress ink mixed with water and had some paintbrush flicking fun! I think it adds to the whimsical look of the card.

Well I am off to keep practising with my Copics.
