Projects for Copic Class

 
 
This month we'll be using Elizabeth Craft Designs stickers and Glitter Ritz to create our cards.  Instead of filling in each section with a different color glitter we'll use our Copic Markers.
It's a fun process with great results.  Here are the samples that we'll be making in class.
 



We'll be using the negative pieces from each sticker to add to the inside.
 
The Copics work well with the glitter but it's important to not overblend since the alcohol in the ink can dissolve the glue on the sticky tape.  For this process, you should use light feather strokes rather than circles.  Also, it's important to burnish the glitter well so that the surface feels almost like velvet.  Your pens won't get ruined!  Not all microfine glitters can get a smooth enough texture so as not to ruin your brush tips.  Again, we're using Crystal Glitter Ritz.
 
I hope my gals will enjoy the projects and want to make more.

So cute. I got all of the supplies for this technique at a Scrap Expo 2 years ago. I need to break them out again. Thank you for the inspiring reminder
