One Image Three Ways

Finally got into the stamping room today.  Gilbert was so good to fix lunch and supper while I colored away.  Had this image I wanted to try water coloring with and also do a Copic coloring.  I found out I like the Copic the best and it was the fastest way to color also.  Used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 120 lb. card stock  I thought I would like the water color one the best but actually it is my least favorite.  I did add some liquid Pearl Ex to it to give it a bit more glitz.  However, it is my favorite of the cards I made.   So why not VOTE on which is your favorite,  leave me comment with your choice.  As always your comments make me smile and are like a hug right from you.  Red heartDSC01258This top one is the water colored pencils on GKD cardstock and the CS didn’t take the pencils very well.  Had to use a lot of pressure.


This one is the Copic colored one. You just can’t deny the brilliance that copics give you.  I dug out an old corner punch that was happy to be used again.  Remember those? I was practicing the coloring technique they showed on Split Coast Stampers last week. Always something to learn on there. DSC01255

This was the same Staedler Water Color pencils that I used on the top card but did this on water color paper from Michaels.  I learned by error that my Memento ink pad didn’t work with the water colors on this paper.  It smeared though it didn’t smear on the Pure Luxury paper.  So on this image I re-stamped it with Staz-on.  The best choice for water color paper. So you can’t tell real well but the black is taped onto GKD pure luxury with a tiny white boarder around the black but it kind of blends in with the background.   SU wide organza ribbon in black.  Unknown pink grosgrain.   You can click on any of the images to get a closer look if you care to.  Happy Weekend everyone!  Sunshine predicted for us tomorrow.


  1. I think the coloring looks a little better with the Copics. These are all nice though, Janeen! I like how the leaves go off the edge on the top card. I like the look of the copics, too. I still don't have any! It looks like you picked up some good tips from SCS. I saw that, too.

  2. This is hard vote b/c they are all beautiful! I would say I love the first one most little tags and I love the scalloped frame!
