Sparkly Snowman Card

Hi everyone!! Samantha here with another Tuesday Tips and Tricks segment.


Today's Copic Tip:
PAPER POWER
Don't underestimate the power of good Copic paper!! There are lots of Copic quality papers out there, find one that you like and that works for you, and stick with it. Use the same kind of paper all the time when you are Copic coloring because then you will get consistent results (and start to color better and better). If you just use any old paper, or swap out your papers often, then you will have trouble becoming a Copic MASTER! So same paper, all the time.

 99% of the time, I use the same paper, Xpress IT, which is available right here in the iCopic Store. I get beautiful results with this paper and I am hooked! But it really is a personal choice which paper you use. The bottom line is, find a paper you like, and use it consistently, and you WILL improve. You really have to know your paper (is it soft, easily feathers, can take up lots of ink, etc).
 


Here's my full project for today:
