Friends Forever

Hello all!! I am here with a bright and cheery card today.
For my image, I colored in the peppers from the BFFs stamp set with my Copic markers. I have always found that I love the way the colors bleed together on the back of my cardstock, so that is what I decided to showcase for this card. You still get the image, but without the constraints of the lines! {I have never been one to stay inside of the lines on anything} depending on how much you have blended and at what times, depends on the placement of color on the back. The much darker spots are ones that I went back to later and blended .
For the faces, I inked just that part of the stamp and placed it about where they would have lined up on the other side. I also used my Spica glitter pen to outline the tops of the pepper!!

Here is a close up of the coloring from the backside.
I hope you all enjoyed!!


  1. I haven't done a lot with my Copics because I seriously have the hardest time staying inside the lines with them. With colored pencils I'm much better. But I'm still trying since I have invested in some. I really do like looking at the back side of the paper too. What a fun idea to use that side for your project. Awesome job! Fun, bright and unique! I love it! Hugs- Glora

  2. This is just WOW! Neat trick, especially with those cutie patootie peppers.

  3. Love this technique DoBea! Super cool!! :)

  4. You are so creative! I love this technique!

  5. DoBea I love how this turned out! I like the backs of some of my images too but never thought to use them in this way. Very clever!
