Cup of Cocoa


Hi guys.  As promised here is the other Forever Friends card that we made in the morning.  Sweet isn't he??  Again I embellished the background papers using stamps from a clear Christmas Hero Arts stamp set that consists of different snowflakes as well as a flourish and the wording is once again from a Popcorn Bear Christmas stamp set.

I stamped the main image using Starlite Black Brilliance and coloured using the Copic Ciaos.

All the materials and products used on this card are available from The Glitter Pot.

Thanks Teresa - they are just sooooooo sweet aren't they!

Hiya Tracey. Thanks for the compliment regarding the Copics. I am finding them really easy to use and I really enjoy working with them as the shading you can achieve with them is amazing. I am by no means an expert with them but a tip is that you will need ultra smooth card to get a good blend with the inks - if the card is too absorbent then the ink will sink into the card and not blend. I actually show how I use the Copics in the new Colouring Techniques DVD but basically I start with my darker shades first and then use the lighter shades to blend with. It's a shame you don't live closer this way as I could have shown you them this Saturday at The Glitter Pot!!
