Coloring White with Copic Markers + Emboss Resist
Today I’m sharing some tips on Coloring White with Copic Markers + Emboss Resist. I’m super excited to be guest designing for Hello Blue Bird this Month. This first card I’m sharing is using the Mice from an older stamp set called Field Mice and pairing it with the NEW Background Stamp Birch Trees. Mark your calendars the new release will be available on the 25th.
I have a Coloring Tutorial using the Field Stamp Set and coloring the mice grey. It’s a great way to see where I’m shading the mice and to see the mice in a different color. Check out This Video on coloring white with Copic Markers for some tips on leaving a white space and shadowing grey.
Since, I’m using Copics so I stamped my Mice, Balloons and Butterfly images in Memento Black ink and stamped onto my Copic Xpress it Blending card. Because I used my Misti I know I’m going to get a perfectly stamped image.
Here’s a list of the Copic colors I used to color my images:
Mice – W00, W1, W3, W5, R30, R000
Purple Balloon – BV02, BV00, BV000, BV0000
Orange Balloon – YR12, YR20, YR00
Teal Balloon – BG13, BG11, BG10
Green Balloon – YG11, G20, YG13
Pink Balloon – RV11, RV10, RV000
Butterflies – B32, B34, B000
Emboss Resist Technique
I embossed the Birch Trees background in White Embossing Powder on white cardstock. I took my blender brushes and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink and and lightly brushed the cardstock to make the trees have a grey tone. This Emboss Resist technique is perfect for solid stamps, the distress oxide ink wipes right off of the embossed area.. Next, I distressed some mowed lawn Distress Oxide ink and trimmed a piece of cardstock to resemble grass and lined it along the bottom part of my card.
