My Favorite Things
Copic Creations is having a new challenge - Any Copic image colored on your favorite paper. Check out all the fabulous cards at Copic Creations. They are gorgeous!
My favorite paper for layering for a card base is Pure Luxury. However, for focal images, I just love Cryogen. The paper is just wonderful for coloring with Copic markers. It is easy to blend and the paper saturation is just wonderful. I selected the following card for my challenge.
