You Sparkle - Copic Refills on Yupo...

Hello everyone,

I'm here today to show you a really fun Copic technique with Copic Refills on Yupo paper.

The items I have used for this technique are - 
a sheet of Yupo paper, Copic Refills 0 Colourless Blender, Y38 and RV55, a small ball tool and a straw. 
First I randomly squeezed some colourless blender over the Yupo paper.  
Then I added a few pools of Y38...
...followed quickly by some patches of RV55
Then I added some more drops of Colourless Blender...
...and quickly blew the blender and the ink over the paper.
I repeated this a couple of times until the ink had spread and I had an effect I was happy with.
Then I put some drops of Y38, Colourless Blender and RV55 into an ink palette...
...and using the small ball tool I picked up a dot of YR38 and placed the ball tool on the inky design.  You will see that the inks work together and a circle develops with a pale inside and a dark outline.
I repeated this with RV55 and kept applying dots over the inky background until I liked the effect!
This is my final design, I had never tried this before so i was really happy with how it turned out!
I could have just stopped there as this is really pretty!
I decided to make a background for a new stamp by 
Stamping Bella - Oddball Sparkle fairy.
