Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Katy asks: "What's your favorite cardstock for Copic coloring?"
A: There are 3 papers that I use with Copics. If I'm stamping and plan to use the markers alone or with pencils, I use Neenah's Classic Crest 80# or 110# smooth cover stock (the color I have is Solar White, but there are some others as well). If I'm coloring die cuts or I want to mix the markers with watercolor on a stamped or printed image, I'll use Fabriano Studio Hot Press watercolor paper (I have the 140# weight but there is a 90# weight as well). For digital stamps, I like how Copic markers work on Canson Canva-Paper. It's a coated paper so rather than soaking in, the inks blend on the surface.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
ondinesgirl put her own twist on the Front Flap Card: "Great layout. I modified it with an Ivory A2 base card, 4" x 5 1/4" embossed layer; 3 3/4" x 7 3/4" flap so it was flush with the 4" x 5 1/4" layer; 3" x 3 3/4" DSP on the outside flap and 3" x 3 3/4" ivory inside flap. I used 10" of ribbon wrapped at the top of the flap and tied into a bow, and a label punch for the front sentiment. Definitely adding to my favorite layouts!"
