Once again I have pulled out the copic markers, well just 1 really- can you see where I have used it???............. it is in the background!!
I started out with a sheet of Stamper's Select White (PTI), coloured it all with my one and only wide copic marker (C5), then I dropped colourless blender solution in a random pattern, the circle sizes depend on how much fluid is applied.  I am just loving this effect, must be my fetish with dots and circles!  Now I am spending my time searching for more wide markers to add to my collection!

The Recipe:
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White (PTI), Rich Razzleberry, Really Rust, Sahara Sand
Stamps: Star Print (PTI)
Ink: Really Rust, Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand
Copic: Blender fluid, C5 wide marker, 110
Accessories: white Elastic, Large silver brads, jumbo eyelets (SU), Crop o dile, Star Punch (SU), Notebook

Thanks for stopping by
happy Crafting

You're a day early, Sue. Assume you are away this weekend and had to post? Fun journal. I really must get some stars!! You've done a great job on this week's colours.

What a cool notebook! LOVE all your embossed stars! :)

Shelley Germann said...

Isn't this color combo great? One I would have never done on my own! Your notebook is just super with all the stars a top the gray. It's very masculine. Nice job!

Amazing treatment with the marker! Such a cool background--at first I assumed it was paper but no, you MADE that! Way to go. Love the use of the colors on all the stars. Great card! :-)
