Hey There! ~ Spring Fling

Verve has some challenges going on right now for the Spring Fling. My card was inspired by the Spring Fling: Challenge 2.

I used a couple of pieces from the Good Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pack along with this Verve image from the Up, Up, & Away stamp set. My coloring is obviously not the best with the Stampin' Write Markers, but I'm still playing the Copics I recently bought. When I tried coloring the balloon with the Copics, it smeared my Black Stazon, which I thought was permanent. I guess I need some different ink for my lined images if I'm going to use the Copics. Any suggestions out there?

Have a great week everybody!

Stamps: Up, Up & Away (Verve), Really Retro
Paper: Regal Rose, Baja Breeze (retired), Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Whisper White CS, Good Neighbor DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana Stampin' Write Markers

Great card Stacey! I use Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink with my Copic's :)

Great cloud and house DP to go with this image! Great job on the sketch. I've heard Memento Tuxedo Black is good for Copics (though I don't own any myself, many blogs I check use it). You can also check SCS threads on this if you like.

Fab card Stacey! I adore those Verve balloons! I agree with Beth and Marisa - Memento ink is best for copics (I use either Tuxedo Black or Rich Cocoa). Those balloons also look awesome paper pieced!
