Hello and happy Friday! Yay for the weekend!
Why purple poppies? Because I wanted to use a scrap piece of cardstock that I had used to clean my brayer on when I was Gelli printing.
I started by printing my image on a scrap piece of copy paper. Then I decided where on the Gelli print I wanted the image, and taped the Gelli printed cardstock on top of the printed copy paper image. I ran it through the printer again and this is what I got:
While it was still taped to the copy paper, I tried out different Copic colors until I found the ones I wanted to use.
Then I removed the cardstock with the image from the copy paper, cut it to size, and colored it up. (I'm not specifically recommending that you use your Copic markers to color over acrylic paint, which is what I had used on my Gelli print. I do keep extra marker tips in case I ruin a tip doing something different like this. In this case, my markers seemed to be ok afterward.)
Well, what do you think? Do you like how it turned out?
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
