Copic Markers and Wildflowers


I took a Copic coloring class from Sandy Allnock, link here: Mini Copic Wildflowers Class 1. It's an inexpensive class that builds confidence using alcohol markers without needing to sketch first. Just start coloring on white cardstock. I was terrified but after tossing a couple tries, it started to get easier. I say jump in and do it - you won't be disappointed. She has since added Copic Wildflowers 2 but I have not taken that class yet.

Cardstock: I tried some new to me cardstock that Jennifer McGuire spoke about in her favorite things 2020. It's from Amazon, called Accent Opaque Digital, 16 pt "Smooth" 120# white, 8-1/2 X 11 inches, 150 sheets. It truly is smooth, super thick and sturdy, feels almost like chipboard and takes alcohol markers and color pencils well so far. I accidentally dropped a bit of water onto it and it swelled right up, so not good for watercolor, even a little. For the price, I am very impressed with this cardstock either for card bases (the sturdiest I have ever used), bright white, I used the metal cut plate more when die cutting but the die cuts look GREAT using this cardstock.

  2. These cards are all so beautiful and you have used your classes to good advantage. I am so blessed to have one of these cards in my possession too. They are all so amazingly gorgeous! I don't know if I could ever do a freehand project nearly as lovely. But I might have to try too!
