Do you use digital image? One of my favorite places to shop for digi's is over at Phindy's Place. Two weeks ago I won Phindy's challenge and received a five dollar gift certificate...wahooo!! Cosy Cottage is the image I chose and it was hard to pick for I wanted them all! This is the card I created with it! The windows look a tad orange yellow in the photo but are a soft glow in person!
Copics: House and drive-way. E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, C5, BV25. Windows: YR21, YR30 Y11. Tree's: YG 63, YG61 G40. Red: R39, E35, R32
White/ fine Crystal Snow by Steampendous to the roof, snowman and ground.
Sewed around the card and sprayed it with clear Goosebumps! I love this spray for it doesn't change the copic ink and leaves a shimmering texture sheen!
TIP OF THE DAY: Did you know you do not have a tight seal on your marker if it has any kind of build up around the closure? After coloring - I would spend countless hours cleaning my caps for they would be full of gunk. Now I clean them in a few minutes and this is how I do it!
You will need:
Isopropyl Alcohol: I buy either 70 or 91% and the cheapest brand
Jar with lid
My reds get ugly fast
Pour some alcohol into your jar
Add your dirty caps
Place the lid on the jar and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Depends on how dirty they are.
Remove and dry on paper towel... That's it!
No rubbing or q-tips to get down inside the cap - I use the q-tip to only dry it. The Ink all comes off with the shaking!
Don't throw your alcohol away it is still good!
I added brown, green and blues to the jar and you can see they are clean too!
I dip my marker into a clean jar of solution for nano second. Squeeze it gently with a paper towel - this removes all the dried particles that might make it tacky when coloring. This happens with your darkest colors. Remember only gently squeeze and quickly. If done quickly and gently it will not affect your tip or colors.
