Todays tutorial on Splitcoast is about adding Texture to your Copic coloring.

You all know I went to the Copic Class in Pensacola a month ago. Marianne Walker is amazing and shared some great tips with us. I passed some of them on in this tutorial.


I started by stamping this adorable dragon from Our Craft Lounge in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah White cardstockand coloring him with  Copic Markers.

(Dragon: YG00, YG23 and YG25; Rocks: W1 and W4; Flowers: Y35, YR04 and R27; Grass: G24, Ground: E34 and E37, Sky: BG10)

The texture was added with the Blending Pen.

The image was layered on a Black Scallop rectangle cut with Nestabilities. On the upper left I added a Jumbo Pewter Eyelet with Riding Hood Red Ribbon and a Clear Rhinestone brad. The upper right hand corner was paper pierced.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock folded in half. Next come a 4″ square in Basic Black and a 3 3/4″ square in Pumpkin Pie. The 2″ x 3 3/4″ strip of designer paper is from the Flock Together paper pack. It was sanded and the bottom paper pierced.

I stamped the sentiment and eggs on Neenah paper in Tuxedo Black, colored the eggs in the same colors as the dragon and punched it out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. The sentiment was first layered on a 1 3/8″ Chocolate Chip circle, then on a retired Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware piece.


I kept the inside very simple and the layers similar to the outside.

I am sorry for another late post. My Internet was down this morning. Something is wrong with the splitter. I didn’t even know we had one sitting where it is. I felt like McGuyver (and hopefully not like McGroover) messing with it so at least we can have Internet, if not TV. I need to buy a new one of those things.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles

    I am so intrigued by those markersr, but they are expensive and I think you need some guidance to learn how to use them, so this is not something I would buy sight unseen.

    That’s okay, though – I do not really need something else to add to my wish list… ;D
