Well, I finally got my X-Press It Paper. It is very smooth to the touch but, honestly, I'm not too sure I like how it blends. I created a card for a family member's birthday and while I was happy with the blending in the hair and face, the dress did not blend as nicely. I did have a great time coloring her though as I think Saturated Canary images are amazing! They are very fun to color! I'm still getting the hang of copics but I think I am improving. As stated, I used a brand new saturated canary image - isn't she beautiful! Her hair is fab!

I tried coloring her in all blues (BG70, BG72, BG75). I also used Martha Stewart Wintergreen glitter glue for some sparkle to her hair.

I blinged out the card with some rhinestones and glitter cardstock. Here is the finished card. The stamped phrase is from Close to My Heart C1458 Paper Lantern. I also used an embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts.

I kept the inside very simple and clean using CTMH S1206 Life is Tweet stamps and a few heart punches using my recollections punch from the glitter cardstock.

I would like to add this card into the following:

  6. Gorgeous card! LOVE her! She's so sweet!!
    I find flicking the marker (rather than strokes, circles) helps to blend better on the Xpress It card - Hope that might be a little helpful hint.
