Fun Fishes

Friday, 21 August 2020

 

I am over on the Scrap'n Stamp Blog today detailing this card and the technique I used which is called "Copic Bleed".
If you are wondering what that means, read on and I will explain.

This is done by Copic colouring a page (I used a Colouring Book) with cardstock tucked firmly underneath your colouring piece, so the bleed from the colouring bleeds through to the cardstock, as shown above. I used my Make Art Stay-tion to keep the pieces together using the magnets.

For my colouring I used Copic Sketch Markers in B12, B32, B16 and G14 for the background. For the fish I used Y08, Y38 and YR68; BG11, BG15, BG45 then V12, V15 and V17.

The colouring page is a thinner paper, so I attached mine to a piece of 100lb cardstock. You do not need to have a colouring book to do this technique. You can use your favourite stamp and stamp with Copic friendly ink on paper such as Hammermill Premium copy paper and add the cardstock underneath.

Once I was finished with the colouring I die cut the “wishes” sentiment from a piece of 120lb. white cardstock, then coloured with Glitter Markers in purple.

I attached the piece to my white cardbase, then attached the “wishes” sentiment using Nuvo Adhesive.

For the inside I stamped the sentiment on the piece of “bleed cardstock” using VersaFine Clair Ink in Fantasia.

Returning to the card front I added air bubbles using Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze.

I hope you will give this technique a try and that you have enjoyed the process. Following are Affiliate Links for the products that I have used on this card, at no extra cost to you.
