Ellen Hutson Blog Hop + Chicken and Background Copic Marker Video Tutorial
Hello Crafty Peeps! Today I’m sharing a fun card using this adorable new stamp set from Ellen Hutson, Good Egg! I decided to create this fun background freehand using my Copic Markers. Don’t worry I have a full, real-time video to share how I colored the entire scene.
First, I stamped my images in Memento Desert Sand Ink, so I could have that no line look. I used my Mini Misti to line up and stamp my images right where I wanted them. If you’re coloring using Copics or any other alcohol markers, you need a heavy smooth cardstock. I’m using my favorite paper — Copic Xpress it Blending Card.
