Dare 2B Artzy Gifts Bookmarks (Copic on Watercolor Paper)

October 5, 2017 |  by  |  Cards, Copics

So I know we say Copic goes on smooth cardstock, but today I am breaking the rules! Favorite part of art Learn the rules so you can break them 🙂 Today I am coloring on watercolor paper.

Today’s post is with a beautiful stamp set by Dare 2B ArtzyThe Potter.” I started by cutting one large sheet of watercolor paper down into 24 smaller bookmark sized pieces, 2 1/2″ x 6″ and stamped them with my stamps ( I used three from the set and set them up on my Misti for mass production)

Now for some Copics, here is a peek at what they look like before blending similar to cardstock, take a peek at the back too, not as much bleeding through, this is heavy paper. I love the rich color and wait to see how it blends!! (E95, E97, E99) We tell people to stay away from watercolor paper because it absorbs so much moisture so it sucks up that Copic ink as well. I have my refills sitting right here so I am just not worried about using up my ink.

Then I blended it just like normal, it blends beautifully. Watercolor paper is super soft so the blending is really easy!

I finished off my bookmark and added rounded corners and a simple tie. Here is another peek at the back as well. I could cover the back with patterned paper or more watercolor paper, but as usual I am not worried 🙂

Here is a quick close up of the image as well.
