get well cards featuring copic markers

this morning i have several cards to share with you. but the fun thing is that they all feature the same technique!

i've been loving all the floral stamps i've seen lately that lend themselves so well to various coloring techniques. normally i would of gone with watercolors but i've been wanting to get some more use from my copic markers.

i'll be honest, when i first started on these cards i thought they were terrible and more than once i almost threw them away about halfway through. but there was this special point i would get to with each one where once i'd added the coloring and cut away the extra white edges that i began to love this technique. and obviously as i made 5 in this same style.

there was also something very fun and freeing when coloring the images. i didn't have to give it much thought and it was loose and free. another bonus was i didn't have to worry about blending, which is why i think a lot of people don't try copic markers.

i really loved how these turned out and i want to make more of them and try some other techniques. i did try stamping in versamark then doing white embossing but that one i did throw away! ha! it just didn't have the same pop as the black ink.

i definitely think this style would lend itself to lots of different sentiments. also these would be fun to make up as a set for a gift!
