CropStop Copic Friday

CropStop changed up the DT while I was on my break, so instead of bringing you an Embossing Project every Friday, I will now be on rotation for all the products in the CropStop store...and it won't always be on a Friday! How cool is that?!

For today, I am showcasing Copic Markers! I am still in the learning stages, but enjoy using the markers. They make coloring go super fast!

I've made a fun harvest card using the new Basic Grey Pyrus papers and a Stampin' Up stamp that's been in my stash for a while.

I cut circles with the Spellbinders smooth and scallop circle dies. I cut a scallop border strip with a scallop Fiskars edge punch. I stamped my image onto cream cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The image is colored exclusively with Copic Markers (I used both Sketch and Ciao).

I used the following colors: B02, BG01, 100, C1, W1, E09, E19, E31, E33, E35, E37, E44, E57, YR12, YR16, YR18, YG09, YG21, YG25, YG95, Y15, Y11, Y21,G05, G07, R29, R27, Colorless Blender. To make the bird a "soft black," I touched the tip of the 100 marker to the tip of the W1 marker, and colored with W1.

Here is the inside. The sentiment stamp is Papertrey Ink from the Vintage Picnic set.

Make sure to stop by the CropStop Message Board to see what fun everyone is having! Also, make sure you stop by the CropStop Blog tomorrow morning for the World Card Making Day Blog Hop! I'll have a project here during the hop, and be giving away a RAK!

Note: I used Sketch TESC129 from Taylored Expressions Blog as inspiration for this card. This is also for the Practical Scrappers challenge: Stamps.
