Copic Markers & Tim Holtz Distress Ink

Last night, I decided to break out some of the new Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I was curious to know if I could color in an image stamped with the Tim Holtz ink with a copic marker. I was hesistant because I thought it would smear the ink as I have had a lot of trouble with different inks in the past when coloring with the copics. I used the Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and my New Leaf Copic Ciao to the image and colored all over it. Photobucket No SMEARING at all =) I am so excited bc these inks come in such a variety of colors.

Finally, I made this thank you card for a friend. I used my Inkadinkado repositionable stamps, Formal Expressions. These stamps are so easy to use! I also used the Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters to create a background of color where I stamped the bird. The Tim Holtz inks stay wet a bit longer so it is easier to smear and create =) Of course, I used some Stickles in Patina & my Glitter Spica pen in blue to accent. Here is my card:


P.S. All of the stuff on here is stocked in my store so feel free to check it out =) Thanks for looking!!

Hi Loreen
When you used the Tim Holtz Distress Inks, heat set it and it will dry faster and won't smear. Remember it is a water base item so unless you heat set it, you may have smearing.

By the way I love your blog and have now subscribed to it :)
