Today I am combining my love of Stencils with my love of the Copic Markers. This is a different way to use the stencils, by outlining the image with a Micron Pigma .01 Black pen. This creates a "stamped" image. Then you can color the image with your Copic Markers. On this card I used the Umbrella stencil from Dreamweaver stencils again. Then I wanted to have an "It's a Shower" sentiment on the card. There wasn't any available in a stencil, so I combined the words and letters from the Birthday Sentiment Stencil and the word shower from the Rain Words Stencil. I also wanted my sentiment to match the colors of the Copic Markers, so I took the Translucent paste out of the container and mixed in a small amount of the Plum Royale F/X powder. After I mixed it together, I spread it over the words. Because these words were on different areas of the stencil, I needed to allow to dry, before doing another word. To see a step-by-step tutorial of this technique, stop by the Paper Craft Planet Site under the Giveaway and Dreamweaver Thursday Tutorial.
