With a Cherry On Top

In my coloring craze I printed out this wonderful Cherries and Berries digital stamp by Power Poppy.  This was a fun relaxing image to color and kept me smiling all the way to the last flick.  Marcella (who is as sweet as cherry pie), has some amazing new images and stamps out and if you haven't taken a look at Power Poppy lately it should be your next stop!  


Sometimes with reds I find that I use a bit more ink then normal so I will use Copic X-Press it Blending Card.  It give me more room for layers of ink.

If you ever find yourself struggling to get a perfect blend on the card stock you are using, have you tried Copic X-Press It Blending Card?  For most people it is really easy to find a place that sells it locally.  If you find that your colors tend to bleed outside the lines then you should make a switch.  Some great features about this card stock is it is ultra smooth and has a very silky finish.  This is important when coloring with Copic Markers.  It can handle many layers of ink before it becomes oversaturated.  If you tend to color from dark to light you will have a much easier time getting smooth blends using this paper.  Some people have a hard time getting the right paper to feed through their printer when doing digital stamps but this paper is the perfect thickness for running through a printer too.  If you haven't been using quality paper you will be totally amazed by the difference this paper brings to your coloring skills!

Oh, I do love cherries. These are beautiful. Look at the shine and shade. Lovely card.

In Florida there is a short and I do mean a short time span that we get the cherries called Mt. Ranier that come from the state of Washington. They cost more than 1 Copic marker. They are delicious though.
