Lazy Stamping - can you dig it?

I'm a lazy stamper. So what? Maybe you're a lazy stamper and you appreciate that in a blogger. Maybe you're NOT lazy, but you want to be so that you can have more time for vampire movies or something.

Regardless of which category you fall into, I think you'll enjoy my lazy technique today. I used it to color my adorable little creature on this card - and it's so quick and easy you'll just start coloring everything that isn't moving!Stamps: Doodle Factory Creatures II Ink: Memento Paper: Basic Grey, Crumb Cake,
Accessories: Tim Holtz die, SU Label Punch, Webster's Pages trim.

I did not invent this technique, but I sure enjoy the heck out of it! I call it Copic palette blending, and it involves... well, you'll just have to watch the video!

Ingredients required? An image stamped with Memento ink, two Copic markers, a non-porous surface and some serious laziness. So enjoy!

I hope you're having a cool, lazy weekend!

  1. Love it! I still have to tell myself, "It's ok, it's ok" everytime I take a light copic onto a dark one. Great your sassy little monster!

  2. i love your videography! your voice is so natural, not forced or scripted. this makes me want copics in a big bad way, but they are so not in the budget. still, it was relaxing watching you color, and that technique really is the bomb!

    thanks for sharing!

  3. Yeah, I still freak out when putting a lighter color Copic into a darker ink. Love this little guy. Great video!

  4. I love lazy techniques. Too cute. Great video.

  5. Love it! Go lazy!!! I need to get out my copics and play soon.

  6. Great idea! And I thought there was only way to do Copic blending. Thanks!

  7. P.S. Do you think the benefit stamps you talked about in a previous post will be restocked? I love yours and Suzi Blu's and they show them as being sold out. :-)
