Add Texture with Copic Blending Solution!

Hi bloggers, and happy Wednesday to you!  I just loved this genius idea of adding texture to Copic coloring video taped by our friends at Scraptime in CHA last month, so I had to share it with you!


Scrap Time - CHA Winter 2012 - Copic Markers - Creating Texture from Mark Giles on Vimeo.

Supplies to add texture to your next Copic Markers Project from this blog:




In order to get texture with Copic coloring, pick a material like a piece of sweater, wadded paper towel, a terry cloth rag, burlap or even twine!

Here's a gorgeous example from Kerry Johnson...she used the texture technique to add a fuzzy element to the sweater in this adorable stamp set from MFT, Let's Chat.  Don't you love it?
