Copic Christmas


See, I told you I would get around to making a card with no BLUE on it!! LOL and here it is.
The Technique Challenge at Splitcoast this week is called Copic Ink Background.  It calls for Copic re-inkers rubbed onto glossy paper and hand sanitizer.  Having none of those supplies, I had to put on my thinking cap and remembered a card I made a long time ago using Copic markers and Blending Solution that achieved the same results.
I began by masking my card front then randomly coloured squares within the masked area.  I then dropped Blending Solution over that which pushed the ink giving my card a bokeh look.
When that was all dry, I stamped the snowflake from SU and the sentiment from Hero Arts with Versamark and embossed it using white embossing powder.


I am adding my card to these challenges:
