Make it Monday #29 - Freestyle Copic Coloring



Can you tell the kiddos are back to school? Two posts in one day?!?! LOL!

This weeks PTI Make It Monday Challege says it's ok to color outside the lines!! :)

I used the paintbrushes from the Friendship Jar Fillers stamp set and a sentiment from Happy Trails to make this super quick card! I just stamped the image, scribbled some color outside the lines of the paintbrush tips, and used the Copic colorless blender to make the colors look watercolored. A few swipes of a black ink pad along the edges, and then I popped the image panel up on foam dimensionals. Quick, easy, and FUN! :)



Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Friendship Jar Fillers, Happy Trails
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Stampers Select White
Other: Copic Markers, Pop Dots
