I really really needed to do some housekeeping and clean up all my Copic Markers and finally I got some cleaning solution (because it's not really fun to spend money on CLEANING solution, boring stuff. Not pretty stuff) because one of the lids wouldn't close properly anymore. I kept the bottle out and thought I could do something fun with it too. I remember seeing Julie Ebersole doing some lovely backgrounds with Archival ink and some kind of alcohol and thought I could try to replicate it with Copic markers. I just scribbled a couple of colors on an acrylic block. dropped some of the alcohol solution on top and smooshed it to some glossy cardstock and voila! Pretty pretty backgrounds! I just stamped some Hero Arts sentiments with Archival Ink on them and added some WRMK papers that I just got (and adore).
Easy peasy and something fun to do with boring stuff. I'll try to come up with some more ways to use it because cleaning is so not fun. And procrastination is my middle name. Btw, the markers are still dirty. And they probably will be for a while more.
