    I was so surprised to see this weeks challenge. I’ve been on a kick of using Copics on vellum. Is this what they call serendipity?

    this was fun to print and copic colour on vellum.. especially vellum with a faint line in the paper… great challenge and fab examples.. way to go.

    This is so ironic that someone was talking about coloring copics on vellum and then this challenge came out. Well, I just had to try this technique so thank you for posting this challenge. I can’t wait to see everyone’s work and the mediums everyone used.

    I love your challenge; rocked me right off my comfie chair! I used some very heavy cs from Club Scrap a friend had given me as well as mulberry paper and some other woven strands of paper. All of this placed on a distressed background and some lovely mounting. My little frog is holding a bottle of flies. This is my hubbie’s Dad’s Dad card – as his favorite saying is: Time’s fun when you’re having flies! He really did not think I had a stamp that says it either! This stamp is an older set from Stampin’ Up – still doing a great job! Ikept it all dark and masculine as in very outdoorsy – even the copics on the frogs outside and inside. Thanks for the challenge!

    This was a challenge, but it did take me out of my usual comfort zone. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Hi Girls I hope my computers working correctly, I’ve used a new blog template and it seems to be misbehaving, sorry if it plays you up, by the way Gorgeous creations, hugs Liz xx

    Copics can be used on almost any paper but to get the most out of the markers made for their superior blending and shading qualities, the right paper can make all the difference. For this challenge, I played with patterned paper, parchment paper and manila file folder. It’s possible but not preferred. Thanks for the challenge.

    Love this idea. Gorgeous cards. 🙂

    I *knew* there was a reason I stamped on kraft cardstock last week…and completely forgot about this challenge. D’oh!!

    Not linking it up as an entry, but thought you might like to see anyway!! I’ll be doing it again – the Kraft I used was nice and smooth and the markers blended well, with no bleeding – yay!
