I just had to make this cute frame card with the Woodland Folk, sooo sweet!
and I couldn’t resist colouring in this cute little girl from Tiddlyinks, I haven’t got all my Promarker colours yet so she isn’t great but isn’t she cute?!!!
I have found Promarkers to be much more user friendly for me so was thrilled to find this fabulous tutorial. Go and take a peek it really is amazing. Meesh’s colouring is phenomenal!
In my quest to find the perfect card for colouring in with Copics and Promarkers and for taking inkjet printer ink vibrantly and true, I have carried out a test on the current card I use against my new find! I was using the Concord record cards and it was fine but my colours never looked vibrant enough. My son works for a paper company so I asked him for some samples and have found the coated poster paper is far superior as the colour stays on ‘top’ and is much more vibrant. He got me a 30m roll so I will be ok for a while, but obviously it is not available to the general public so I searched around and found the next best thing is this Duo-Matte 220gsm coated on both sides inkjet photo paper from Tonik. Just wanted to share my find with you all, happy colouring!!!
These are my results.
The top picture is where I have also tested the SU Whisper White cardstock and whilst this is lovely card it still doesn’t take the colours as vibrantly. The SU card is on the left and you can see the red copic marker looks almost orange on it compared to the new paper.
Next are pink petticoat papers with the cream background – the normal paper on the left and the new one on the right and you can clearly see that the cream background colour doesn’t show as well on the ordinary high quality inkjet paper and that the brown is less vibrant.
The middle picture is comparing with promarkers and the bottom is copics, the paper on the bottom is the new coated card and the one on the top is the ordinary Concord card, you can see the difference in the vibrancy of the colours.
For my little darling who is ill in hospital. This little girl reminds me of her so much! Inspired by Dawny P – thanks hunny! I cut the card out on the Cricut using George. The papers are PP and swirl is K&Co felt fusion – not sure about that but wanted a swirl and haven’t got my home accents cart yet! Coloured with copics and promarkers.
