Can you believe tomorrow is JULY?!! Good gracious, I really want summer to slow down. I guess I had better make the most of every single moment before it's gone!
Today, I'm sharing a card created with A Day in Paradise from Taylored Expressions. Now that is the perfect summer time place to be! All that's missing from that picture is my booty in one of those chairs, a good book, & an ice cold beverage in my hand....okay, and my sweetie pie sitting right next to me too. :)
You can get full details about the card over on the Taylored Expressions Blog, complete with detail pictures and a full description of how it's made.
Here's a look at the Copic colors I used to color the scene:
I wanted to chat with you about Copic Multiliner pens, specifically the colored pens. They are pigment-based and compatible with Copic Markers. They come in 8 colors and up to 7 different nib options. They are waterproof, archival, and acid free. So, for all you scrapbookers, these are the perfect choice for journaling in your scrapbook! With 8 colors plus black to choose from, you will be able to match your pages perfectly.
One of my favorite uses for the Multiliners is adding fine detail to a colored image. For instance, the adirondack chairs in the image on my card above benefit from fine streaks made with a Sepia 0.5 Copic Multiliner. My students often ask me about using them to get those fine streaks when coloring an image with hair. I say, YES, absolutely! You can get the finest of fine streaks with your Multiliners; so why not?!
I also always have 0.3 & 0.5 Multiliners on hand in every color because those are the sizes that most stamped images are drawn in. If you happen to stamp an image unevenly, or it doesn't fully stamp, you can finish off the lines quickly & easily with your Copic Multiliner. Sure beats throwing it in the trash and starting all over, doesn't it?!
If you love to sketch, there is no better pen than a Copic Multiliner...especially given that they are compatible with Copic Markers. You can draw your design and then color it in with your Copic Markers immediately aftewards. The Multiliners dry instantly on X-Press It Blending Card. No need to jump around to different mediums. Copic offers everything you need right in one place!
The Multiliners are also excellent for adding fun details, patterns, & doodles to your projects, such as the dots around the sentiment on this card (Cobalt) or the beach sand under the chairs (Warm Gray & Brown).
I also like to use my Copic Multiliners for almost all of my writing. That is the pen I carry in my purse. They are what I use to write inside my cards (in a matching color of course). It's also the pen I reach for to write in my journal. I truly don't leave home without them. Best. Pens. EVER.
I hope you've enjoyed today's creation and a little bit about Copic Multiliners. Have an amazing day, friends!
Thanks as always for stopping by!
