Copics on Fabric
Our Blog Hop with Stamping on Fabric earlier this month perked my interest in experimenting with Copic markers and fabric. You would think it would be a no-no because of how they bleed on paper, but I found them to work okay on unbleached muslin. I will show you several things I did with them.
First I made a fabric background for a card using R81, R83, R85, and R89. I made hatch marks diagonally in both directions with all four colors. When I finished I thought it would be a good background.
Using the T3464 Life of the Party stamp, I colored my image with the same Copic markers as the background.The edges are sponged wtih Palette Claret ink. Pink cardstock and Bazzill ribbon finished off the card.
My next card tries fabric-piecing with muslin for the skirt on the image.
I stamped the image TB3488 Who I Am on unbleached muslin with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the skirt with Copics G12, G14, G19 and cut it out to glue to the card.
The whole image is stamped on Premium White Cardstock and colored with YR12, YR15, YR16, G12, G14, G19, E01, E02. When the skirt is added, the glue keeps it from ravelling. For the crown I added touches from a Spica Peach pen to make it sparkle. Then I sponged Memento Desert Sand to the edges of the image.
The base card is embossed with a Sizzix flower embossing folder, and the image in layered on orange cardstock and green cardstock.
My last card is simply stamping on unbleached muslin and coloring with Copics. The stamp is TA Lovely Butterfly and the markers I used are BV00, BV02, BV04, Y15, Y17, Y19 and E01. I fringed the edges of the muslin.
The background cardstock is Bazzill textured Impatients and yellow cardstock.
So what do you think? Whereas Prismacolor pencils work great on fabric, Copics give a little more pigment depth. But I suppose each fabric would have to be tested, just as different papers have to be tested with Copics.
Thanks for exploring Copics and fabric with me.
