Next 4 Copics Experiments

Stamp (retired) by Tapestry Rubber Stamps. Copics on the flowers, watercolor pencil & paintbrush with water in between. Cougar White paper. Versafine pigment ink with clear embossing powder--disappointed that there's still some smearing this way.

Copics direct-to-rubber, spritzed with alcohol (spritzed the cardstock lightly before impression as well. Watercolor pencil & water in background. Cougar White paper, Penny Black stamp.

Same deal as above, except on watercolor paper, and I also added a light watercolor wash to the background after the stamp was dry. I really like that you can do that without disturbing the stamp! This was actually a second impression from the card above--I didn't add any further ink, just alcohol.

Finally, Adirondack Pitch Black dye ink on Cougar White paper, and all Copic coloring, though I did use some straight isopropyl alcohol on the background. Art Neko stamp.

And now I iz sleepy--nightynight!


  1. These are pretty. I really like the last one.

  2. It looks like you are having some serious fun playing with your new markers. Great art my fav the third one with the Iris :)

  3. I love the bird one. The backgound is super! Although I always want to use Versafine, I've found that if even the smallest place isn't covered with embossing powder, the Copics will find that spot and smear it. Did you get a blending pen in your set?

    Direct to rubber? Scary! You're a brave woman - but you have to be I guess to chase monsters at night.

  4. looks like you're enjoying those markers ;)

    I love the second Penny Black card, keep em coming! :D

  5. omgosh, Heather - these are just wonderful! I adore the first one you posted on the 12th as well.
