Snoopy Enjoying Copics!

That's what I labelled this pic when I saved it! The title still makes me smile - lol.
I couldn't wait to share this card! Though the stars on the car didn't turn out quite like I imagined, I think the overall is pretty cute!
First, let me tell you - Copic Markers DO NOT work with the Emboss Resist technique! I had to use the Copic Blender to remove the ink from the clear embossed stars. I *ADORE* the Copic Blender. If you give Copics a try, you must get a Blender right away. I used it to take away some color in the sun, as well as in the sky and on the ground. Do you see the SU! "enjoy" image? This Copic technique was the one that pushed me over the edge to buy some of these fab markers! I read about it on one of my fav blogs Stamp a Little Love Baby ['She's all that' my Copic Go-to-Girl (you remember, Obi Cami Kenobi from my first Copic post?)]. So when you get your Copics and Blender, also get a bottle of Colorless Blender Ink Refill so you can do this technique too! Basically, I applied the Colorless Blender Ink directly to the stamp - then stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock I had completely colored in with the wedge tip of the Copic Sketch Marker. Isn't is WAY COOL! Cambria showed it to make background images, which I hope to try soon!
Okay - so enough about the Copics, what about SNOOPY?! Is this too cute or what? I got Snoopy from CreativePlayStamps. Go check out their Peanuts Collection of stamps - you'll love them! My kids will have fun with it too - they love the Peanuts DVDs we have. I really enjoy being able to share something from my childhood with my own children.
