Sweet Pea card made with copics

Hello. friends!!

I hope you had a 'scraptastic' weekend! I know I got lots done in the craft room!

Today's card is made using my copic markers and a stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I actually went against my own advice and used a white ink to stamp the image. It worked out great!! I highly recommend the white ink from Papertrey Ink. It is the best there is! I promise!



since I did not use the memento ink I did not want to do a ton of shading. So, for the shadows I just used a grey colored copic. I think for this I used the 'W6' one.



Thanks so much for stopping by!! Make sure to stop by Everyday Cricut enter our contest to win the Expression! Also while you are there check out Joy's awesome card!!

Have a great week!

This card is beautiful! I have some white staz on that I enjoy using, but have a question abut the Papertrey Ink. Are they online only? I have never seen their products in a store, but see them used online a ton! Their stuff looks amazing and so I just thought I'd ask. TFS!

Very pretty! I love how you stamped this on the lt brown paper. I would have probably done it on white paper, but don't think it would have been as pretty.

The white ink did turn out very nice. I have never had much luck with white. Maybe I need to change ink pads. Thanks for the tip.

Gorgeous card!

Pretty card. I really like the white ink. Do you have to colour in each individual section with your copics or can you colour a whole piece (ex. the roses)?

Hi Melanie... I have a question for you... I've noticed you use a lot of Papertrey Ink Products... and you've got me getting ready to place an order with them...but I don't know if you also use SU Products as well.... So here is my question???? DO you know if Papertrey Ink has a cardstock color close to or very similar to the SU Kiwi Kiss Cardstock??? I'm really looking for a color to match it pretty close... I mean really desperate need! LOL If you can give me any input on that I would really appreciate it.. JUst drop me an e-mail when you get a chance...Thanks in advance!
