Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was written by Joan Boardee. She shows us how to use both Copic Markers and Distress Inks to color an image.

For my sample I used Sweet n’ Sassy Everyday Miracles. I stamped the butterfly in Black India Ink on Neenah Classic White cardstock. Part of the image was colored with Copic Markers Y15 and Y17. Next Worn Lipstick Distress Ink was applied directly with the ink pad. The image was misted with water. After the paper dried, the image was cut out and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Three pieces of Solar White cardstock were cut and embossed with a Lotus Pendant die, a Fancy Tag 3 die and a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. A sentiment from the Everyday Miracles was stamped in the center of the the Classic Oval die cut and the edges were sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The oval was adhered over the Fancy Tag die cut and that was adhered to the Lotus die cut.

Pieces of Echo Park Country Drive Patterned Paper were cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before the layers were adhered to a scallop circle card base, cut and embossed with Grand Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die. A couple of Baby Bling Rhinestones and parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finished off the card.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
