Fluttering By

Pin It
Hi everyone,

WE had rain the last few days so I colored digis and had a great time. This is one of the image I was coloring. The card base is DCWV 5x7.  I wanted to use water color paper in my printer but all the papers were to heavy. I finally found one called Cranson 90 lb water color and had no problems getting it through the printer. This is the second image of the fairy I colored, I didn't like how the first one turned out. I finally ended up using copics on the paper. It colors very well even though it wasn't smooth paper. I added some leaves from a stamp I had and colored them up also. Then I cut out a memory box swirl and flowers. The ribbon is a double bow I made from my stash. The butterfly was punched out with a recollections punch. The image is from Morgan Fitzsimmons. I will enter this card into these challenges.

Carol, this image turned out beautifully well. I imagine if you were using w/c paper, it really sucked the ink from the markers. I've even airbrushed copics on w/c paper, and it drains the marker so fast. A friend told me today that you can w/c digi's very well, if you first spray printed image with Krylon workable fixitive (I think that was the name...I know it's Krylon product). Must be in a well ventilated place to spray, then let it dry first. Then w/c doesn't bleed the printer ink. Thought I'd pass this along as I know you do lots of digis. This one is fabulous, and I love the pink & green combo, and your trims were so pretty as well. TFS
