For the past six months, I’ve slowly been adding to my Copic marker collection. At roughly $7.99 a pop, they can add up in a hurry, but boy, once you try coloring with them, you’ll probably see what all the fuss is about. However, I wanted to share a simple card for those of you who are thinking of getting into the whole Copic realm, because you really can just start with a few colors that you love and still make something that is quite charming.
I feel like the key to starting is to start small. The little trees on the card I’m sharing today are a great place to begin. Small areas make for great coloring practice! Plus, I’m always going to be a sucker for a minimal design! You also need some of the basics: a Copic-friendly stamp ink, such as Memento Tuxedo Black, and some good quality cardstock that won’t pill up from the marker ink, such as Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.
I love taking a lot of white cardstock and and just adding in a tiny bit of color. This card has a handful of layers without being too bulky, and the result is simple and charming (at least, I sure think that it is.)
This card making stuff is seriously so much fun.
Here is the tutorial for making today’s card. Enjoy!
Thanks for watching!
