Make It Monday #45 Coloring Embossed Images With Copics

Monday, December 12, 2011

I already posted a card today, but when I saw this week's Make It Monday things just came together.  I was very inspired by this pattern and had been thinking a lot about how to reproduce it with my houndstooth stamp.  I knew there was no way I could ink each section individually with different colored ink pads with out making a mess.  Embossing it with white powder and coloring over each section with a different Copic was the perfect solution!



Thanks for stopping by today, again:)



Cardstock: PTI White, Black
Stamps: PTI Congrats All Ways and Houndstooth
Ink: PTI Summer Sunrise, Memento Black, Versamark
Other: Copics, White Embossing Powder, Summer Sunrise Ribbon

  5. Brilliant coloring of houndstooth! Love all the colours. Great take on the technique, Kara!

    BTW, I bought a warm/cold nail colour yesterday. Apparently the colour changes from Aqua to Torquiose depending on whether the hands are warm or cold. I have to try it out today :)
