Backgrounds with Copic Marker Refill's.

Hi Everyone, today I would like to show you how to make your own background paper using Copic Markers Ink Refills.
Have you ever been ready to make a card only to find the Patterened paper is not the colours you want to use. Well , lets make our own. What you will need is .....

  • Paper or Plastic Plate or Lid

  • 2 Wet Ones- any type, folded into half

  • Solid Stamp

  • Glossy Card

  • Paper Towel- for any spills

  • Copic Ink Refills.
Ok.... Lets get started....
Drop some Ink randomly onto the Wet ones . This is going to be your own custom Stamp Pad

Taking your solid Stamp, press into the Custom Stamp Pad and stamp onto the Glossy card stock.Each time you stamp you will need to re-ink your stamp from your custom stamp pad. The colours are Fabulous and soooo pretty.
Now we dont want to just throw out the Wet ones when we are finished , so lets fold the wet one up a little more and taking another Piece of glossy card lets swipe the wet one over, first one way and then turning the gloss card around lets swipe back the other way. We now have a plaid backgound piece to use on our card......... no wastage here!!!!

Here is my finished card.I used the Plaid backgound piece to back the floral background piece, a bit of lace, cardstock and paper and a Quote that I stamped onto vellum and we have finished.

The Colours I used for the custom backgound are-: B02, BV00 and RV04. The Magnolia Bird was coloured withRV02, B60 and C3
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping, Cheers Debra,xxx
