You make me happy when skies are grey...

Good Morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the Easter break, 
it's Sue here today sharing a rainy day card with a great Copic technique.
I thought I would try a technique with Copic refills and stencils that I have used previously with Distress Ink pads and stencils!  I am really pleased to say that the technique works really well with Copics!

I have put together a tutorial to hopefully show you how you can also achieve such a fun background.
Here are the goodies you need.  You can see that the first thing I did was to colour and cut out the beautiful Stamping Bella Tiny Townie - Rachel loves the Rain.  Make sure you put her somewhere safe while you get inky with your background!
It is important to work swiftly with this technique because the ink dries quite quickly so open all of your refills before you start and tip some colourless blender into your spritzer bottle.
Randomly dab some rows of tiny dots of ink from the Copic refills onto your mat so that you have covered an area roughly the same size as your stencil.
Working quickly, give the ink one fine spray of colourless blender and press the stencil onto the inky mat.
Place the stencil 'ink side down' onto your piece of card
and gently tap the stencil all over with a piece of tissue paper.
Carefully lift the stencil away from the card, this is the effect you will see - isn't it pretty!
Finally, clean your work surface and stencil with some Copic Cleaner.

Here is my finished card.
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.  It would be great if you could try this technique and show your cards to us at Copic Marker Europe on Facebook.
