Thanks a latte

Staying with my drink and food theme, I thought I would share this simple card using the Fiskars clear stamp set, Latte love. I practiced using my new Copic markers to color the image. I have read from many of the "seasoned" Copic users that Memento ink is the best for stamping images that you want to color with Copics. The image does not bleed and dries quickly without needing to be heat set. I used Tuxedo black ink, but I have read that you could use any Memento color and achieve very good results. I had clear gems and I colored them with my blue copic marker tha I used to color the coffee cup, now I have matching bling, how awesome is that. I hoped that the bling would not be too much if this card was sent to a man. Let me know what you think. I need to keep practicing coloring, but I do like how this turned out. You cannot see it very well here, but I used my clear glaze pen to go over the coffee to give it a realistic sheen. Well have a great day and I hope you have had some time to "play" with your supplies today :)


  1. Very cool! Love the coordinating rhinestones. Which blue copic marker did you use? Love the colors.

  2. I used B32 Pale blue and B24 sky blue for highlights.
