I wanted to enter the iCopic challenge this week and was excited to try the challenge! The challenge is to make a beautiful background. I really wanted to use this new cling stamp I got at my local stamping store. I used Memento black ink and stamped this image. I then used my Copics and colored it - this took awhile but it was worth it. I colored in my lightest color first then added striations and shading with my darker colors. Finishing again with the light color to blend. I love this stamp and can see me using more often for a number of cards. Here are the Copics I used for the background.
