I stamped the adorable Josie & Jilly's Chat and colored them with Copics. That's right! I got a fabulous set of Copics from my amazing husband for my birthday. My birthday is still 12 days away, but I couldn't resist trying out coloring. I'm not a pro (by far!) and I've still got to figure out which color combinations work the best. But it's a lot of fun to color and mess around.
One of the things I was bummed about is that my go-to black ink smears terribly with copics (Ranger Archival ink in Jet Black just does not get along well with copics). I have an almost dried-out Memento ink pad that I've managed to get an ok with, but I have to order another ink pad and some re-inker.
