Practicing My Copic Skills

 I got this image when I was in AZ over the summer and she seemed like a great image to use all those Copics I have. She turned out pretty good, but when I opened the card I could see all the ink that bled through on the inside. I was really going for a clean no layer card.  Anybody have a solution for this? I did end up lining the inside with patterned, but is there a better way? I'd love to hear from you if you have any ideas. I'm also happy to share I've finished my Christmas cards for this year. I didn't think I'd get there either. I had the hardest time deciding what I was going to do. I used a fun little set from Paper Smooches and I'll post the card later. Don't want to ruin the surprise for those of you lucky enough to get one of my handmade creations ;-)

 Thanks for looking today and have wonderful fall week. I think we are finally going to get our fall weather this week. YEAH! My favorite time of the year!

Your card is adorable! That's a darling image, and your coloring is great. Unfortunately, Copics (and other alcohol based markers) will bleed through any card stocks that I've tried. If you find one that doesn't bleed, let me know!

Adorable, you rock those Copics :) I haven't found a cardstock that doesn't bleed through. Some are better than others but I think you'd still have to add an inside layer or adhere your colored panel to a card base.

Hey there! Fun coloring for sure! Great design. :-)

The minimum training I've had mentioned that Copics will always bleed through, especially if you blend in multiple layers of ink and are doing it correctly. No way around it.

Hope that helps and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
