Copics and paper

I have collected Copics like the rest of you but have not been real happy with them. They always seemed to bleed outside the lines of my image when I was coloring with them. Couldn't control it. Frustrated me and I would put them away and get out my pencils. I read a number of blogs weekly and lately the ladies have been talking about the Classic white card stock from Flourishes and how well it works with the Copics. Now I know everyone thinks their paper is the best. And I'm not usually easily convinced but I needed white card stock and the price was right so I bought some. It was worth a try I told myself. You can find it here: http://www.flourishes.org/servlet/the-1102/paper%2C-cardstock/Detail. Of course I just couldn't buy one pack of paper. Their stamps have been on my list for some time so I got myself 2 of the sets and I want to show you what I colored this evening. This paper is awesome. No bleeding! Colors blended easily. I'm so glad I ordered this paper. I'll bring my Copics out more often now. I was so pleased at how my images turned out. The rose is from the set. I Love Roses. I cut it out and attached it to a background I found in my stash. Not sure what technique it is but the colors matched. I used Copic #s YG 03 & 06 for the leaves and R 22, 27 & 29 for the rose. The stawberries are from a brand new set called Strawberries and were colored with R 22 & 27 and the leaves are YG 03 & 06 and the strawberry tops were done with YG 06 & 63.




Now to turn my pretty strawberries into a card.
