I decided on a really quick card. I wanted to keep it simple and not fussy. I was also experimenting with using my Copic markers on different CS. For the most part I like using them on SU Whisper White CS. I usually stamp it with Adirondacks Pitch Black, letting it dry for about 2 min. and then begin the coloring process. The snow globe is done like this. I find that with the Whisper White, the ink stays more on the surface, and stays wet longer and is thus easier to blend direct on the paper. Also there is no discernible feathering. The only thing you will find is that the paper becomes somewhat shiny. The Wreath trim is stamped on Solaris White CS which you will find at Ellen's store. I stamped this one with Adirondacks Pitch Black Also, but you could also use Brilliance Black. When coloring the image, I found that the ink soaked in Quickly, and I had to use the technique of picking up darker color with a lighter color in order to achieve blending. Now each person has there favorites, and while I do like the final effect of the Solaris, my fav. is still the SU.

Paper : Bashful Blue, Caramel, Real Red, WWhite, Solaris White
Ink : Buckaroo Blue, Distress Tea Dye

The globe was colored in with Copic markers, the background was airbrushed in BV000. Stickles and Spica pens were used to accent. The bough of pine was colored with Copic and Spica added for sparkle. Caramel CS was pierced in corners with Fleur de Lis type ornament , it was aged with Distress ink, stitching added around, and sprayed with glimmer mist. Sentiment was added last. The whole card shimmers and sparkles with subtle shine. Love it.
Thanks so much and have a great day!
