CropStop Copic Mini-Tutorial #4

Today I'm sharing a mini-tutorial I prepared for CropStop.



THANKS! Coupon Code CTMP-01 saves my readers 10%!




This card uses the Heartfelt Creations Dutch Iris Medley set. I colored my image with the Copic Markers below.








As I was coloring this set....I inadvertently went outside of the lines a bit on my iris stem.






I was planning to fussy cut this image anyway....but it was the perfect situation to show you a COPIC TRICK!








You can use your Copic Colorless Blender 0 to push the ink back inside of the lines!






See the results below!! It's like magic!!














Also, as I was coloring, my green marker ran dry. So I decided to do a quick little photo tutorial to show you just how quick and easy it is to refill these markers!!







Be sure to cover your work area...I usually do this over my Inkssentials Craft Sheet, but for this photo I covered that with white cardstock. You can simpy pull the chisel tip out of the pen.








It's a simple as that! I love the fact that I can replace the tips when they get old....and I can refill them to my hearts content and just go right on coloring!













I hope you enjoyed these mini-tutorials. Next month I will be providing four more tutorials as CropStop focuses on Copic Markers!
