Double Challenge~ SC194 & A Spoon Full of Sugar

I just finished up my card for this weeks SC194 sketch as well as the challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar . The Spoon Full challenge for this week was to make a Christmas card, so luckily I was already heading in that direction with this weeks sketch challenge and was able to combine them. Voila...here's my finished card!



I used Charlotte and her cute kitty from Whiff of Joy and colored them in with my Copics, added some stickles, dew drops and a pretty CTMH snowflake and that's about it. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy as well and was tucked in with a beautiful snowflake in my last order, thanks Katharina!!

I am definitely learning new things with my Copics. They do not work as well on watercolor paper as they do on Bazzill Coconut Swirl or even SU Whisper White. I have read that Neenah Classic and PTI are great as well as Wasau paper, so I'm going to continue my experimenting, but I do LOVE them!!

Thank you for visiting today!! Have a wonderful evening!!

  13. So adorable Kelly!

    Everyone finds copics work differently on certain papers. I like using them on my SU! WW but a lot of people don't. When I use PTI it soaks up so much ink...wonder if that is why a few of my markers are DRY already?
    I also picked up Georgia Pacific at Walmart in the States(we don't have it here...bummer). So if your parents are going down again soon, maybe they could stop and grab some for you...it's super cheap...maybe 5 or 6 bucks for a HUGE pack ;) It's not as white but works well!

    Have a fab weekend!

  16. Hi Kelly, Your Copic coloring is gorgeous! I have been using Wasau paper that I get at Wal-mart. It is pretty economical. I did splurge and get some Neenah Solar white from Ellen Hutson. It is a much thicker paper and works really well if you want to do lots of blending with different shades. You won't bleed out over your lines! Not that I am an expert by any means! Hugs Jeanette

  19. Kelly, You card is just absolutely darling...I'm so inspired to ink up my Charlotte now! I love my Copics too but I just bought the peerless water colour pigments so I’m going to have to give them a go! I use Georgia Pacific paper with my copics. I stocked up on the last time we went to FLA....love it! Thanks for finding my blog...I'm sure glad to have found yours it is awesome!
    Hugs, Tarag
