Copic Coloring on White vs. Ivory Card Stock

Happy Friday! I'm back on the blog with this cool new holiday stamp called "Something About Christmas" that will hopefully cool things off during these hot summer days! This is a big snowman with lots of great detail (which stamps so well in red rubber!) worked perfectly for these tags using the Make A Tag die set. I used both white and ivory card stock and wanted to share how to create vintage and colored looks using Copics, all while showing the differences in the color on both types of paper. So let's get inky!

Let's start with these vintage tags. Using Warm Gray Copics on the ivory card stock, it creates a beautiful vintage sepia look. Add a little Old Paper Distress ink to the edges to complete the look and layer it onto black cardstock. For the white tag, I used. Cool Gray Copics and Hickory Smoke Distress ink on the edges. This coloring technique is great for all sorts of classic and vintage looks.

For the next set of tags, I used traditional colors on white and ivory card stock to demonstrate the difference in how the colors show up. The ivory gives off a more vintage look because of the color so this might be a great way to create a vintage look with minimal effort.

I did use any Distress ink on these as the colors were bright enough on both. I did back them each with Evergreen card stock to compliment the color used the least and added red ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you found some inspiration. Make sure to subscribe for Unity's newsletter for all the updates! Until, next time...

Happy Crafting!
