Copic Coloring: “Love” Card

by Lain Ehmann on August 25, 2011

I saw a Copic coloring challenge on Twitter, and since I hadn’t done a Copic card in a while, I thought I’d take this excuse to grab my markers and get coloring!

The theme was “beach,” but I didn’t have anything that fit perfectly… but I did add some waves:

Simple, as usual!
Products used:

Copic Markers: R29, R24, R22, W7, W5, W4, W2, B0000, B000

Memento ink in Tuxedo Black

StazOn Opaque in Cotton White (for clouds)

Lawn Fawn bon voyage stamp (plane and clouds)

Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp (LOVE)

Hero Arts friendly flag stamp

Corner rounder

Papertrey ink scallop border die-cut (for waves)

Echo Park 6×6 Splash paper pad (for flag)


I think my coloring is getting better, but my stamping skills (like the clouds!) still need an upgrade. I don’t know how people get such clear imprints! I’ll be working on that. :)

    That is an adorable card! 

    Hmmm… Maybe I should do a post about the things that help you get a better impression when stamping.

    Great card.
    I don’t have copics but I saw a tutorial that suggested running a black marker around the outside of the image once it’s cut out. That would stop the little bits of white.

    I actually tried that — LOL! Obviously I need to improve my cutting skills. :)

    Yes. Yes you should! ;)


    well I think the clouds look great with that little bit of ghosting. clouds should look fluffy. my stamping rarely looks crisp, and that’s ok. done IS better than perfect. ;)

    my white stamps must all be too dry or something – I can’t get the white to stand out as much as yours. I have 3 brands, versa mark, hero arts, and the stazon. and they are all only a few months old. any tips?
