Papercrafting designer Sharon Harnist is one of our Design and Education/Instruction team members, and she’s back with us again this month to share a Christmas card project that utilizes several Copic products.
I’m honored to be back with you this month, to share a Christmas card — before you know it, it will be time to start sending them out!
After stamping the Wagon of Toys image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored it with these Copic Sketch markers and Atyou Spica Glitter Pens:
Working quickly after the Blender Solution is sprayed, stamp onto X-Press It Blending Card (image on the left above is the stamped image). The background paper was trimmed, the edges sponged with Distress Ink and machine stitched to a dark blush card base.
The ribbon was custom colored, to match the image — it started out white! Simply color the ribbon (I used rayon seam binding) with the chisel end of a Sketch marker. The color doesn’t have to be uniform for this technique — we’re going for a vintage/shabby, mottled look:
Happy Christmas card making! ~ Sharon
