Copics and Colored Cardstock!

Brutus  Monroe is featuring their cardstock this week and it really IS awesome!  My card for today was made using Lunchbag which is a wonderfully heavy, warm-colored kraft paper.  I tried something new with it today too!  Did you know you can color with Copics on kraft??!!  I didn’t!  But I decided to give it a try and created this card!  My stamps are Wild Hibiscus from Altenew and I stamped, masked and stamped some more till I had an arrangement I liked.

Then I got busy with my Copics!  I used several shades of red, yellow and purple to add layers of color on each blossom.  The Lunchbag cardstock took the Copic ink well and gave me a warm, muted look.  I used shades of aqua to fill in my background, leaving stroke marks to add a little “texture”.

This was basically a one-layer card but I decided to lift my sentiment with a piece of Thermoweb 3D Foam Squares after stamping on a scrap of white and layering it onto a scrap of Lunchbag then trimming the ends.  I also brushed a little Broken China distress ink around the edges to coordinate with the background of my card.  Now that I know how well Copics interact with colored cardstock, I’m going to play around with some other colors!  Let’s see…perhaps some of the beautiful blue Sea, Sidewalk, or even Heather!  Brutus Monroe’s cardstocks are high quality, 100 lb cover and a joy to work with!  Go get some!  😀  And don’t forget to check out what Marie, Aletha, Berina and Waleska have created for the Brutus Monroe blog!
