For today’s Color Wednesday card and video I used two digital stamps from Tiddly Inks: Wryn Hanging Around and For the Birds. I saw these images and thought they were too cute! Just had to have them! And bonus! There’s a clear stamp version of the images, too! The Wryn Hang in There clear stamp set. So if you’re loving the Wryn stamps, check out the other Tiddly Ink clear stamps.
I used Copics to color the image. Then I die cut some clouds to use as masks and added a bit of ink blending with Stampin’ Up! Pool Party ink.
Printing Digital Images for Use with Copics
I used Simon Says Stamp 120# Ultra Thick Cardstock for this card since it would be the card base. I needed the extra weight and I also knew that the Copic coloring wouldn’t bleed through to the inside of the card. I printed it on an Epson Artison 710 printer with Epson Claria Inks. It’s an older printer and might not be easy to find, but if you’re in the market for a new printer, I’d recommend Epson printers. I know some people have experienced printed images from inkjet printers smearing with Copics, but I haven’t had that issue. I’m not sure if it’s the combination of the paper and the printer, or what. I think you really just have to experiment. :)
