Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Blog Hop

How to color a trasparent balloon using Copic Markers

Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Blog Hop

I’m super excited to be apart of the Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Blog Hop! There’s been some awesome cards and projects shown since the start of the celebration this last Wednesday. I  know I’ve been so inspired to create! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than some free goodies, too! Take a look at this awesome special!

Before we get to the hop, I do have a Copic Tutorial for you.. of course! So if you struggle to color balloons or something transparent I hope you find this tutorial helpful.

I’m using the NEW Stamp Set, Birthday Friends and I used my Memento Desert Sand Ink Pad so I can get that “No Line Technique” and I stamped my images on Copic Xpress it Blending Card. That Scalloped Border Die is also from Pretty Pink Posh and let me tell you I LOVE this die! I probably use it more than any other set! I really need to get the other border dies from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here’s a list of Copics you will need to follow the tutorial:

YR00, YR0000, YR12, BG13, BG11, BG10, BV02, BV000, BV0000, N3.

Remember you don’t need the same colors to follow a tutorial. All you need is 3 coordinating colors and make sure the lightest color is very light.
