MIC - NO White Card!


After several (more) nightmares with my car and printers, finally my MIC DT project is finished (a fair few hours late!)!! Now, I know there's no MIC image in sight BUT... due to a very grumpy new printer I couldn't use my digi's :(
This weeks theme at Make It Colourful is 'To Colour on Something Other Than White Card'. Usually for me that would be fab! You know me...a T shirt here...a candle there...or even a bag with a shrink plastic charm....but NO!! New HP printer 'ate' my last piece of transfer paper...shrink plastic was just NOT going to be forced through and don't even go there with the tissue paper!!! *.*
Then...an idea!!! Acetate!!! That's it...I'll use acetate! Ermmm...ok...so I won't then. New printer won't do transparencies!! Its ink is hopeless for Copics/Promarkers too... even heat set or left for a week, it still smudges/bleeds!!! Bloomin good job it prints beautiful digi papers!!!
So...here we are with a stamped image on a plastic choccy box. Not THE best colouring, because as with normal alcohol ink, it spreads on contact with the surface, but it's not too bad. I stamped the image on the underside of the lid and coloured on the top. Due to the shiny plastic I needed Stazon...but couldn't use it with Copics.
The little flowers were made with Liquid Pearl.
If you get a chance do nip across to see the rest of the teams fab creations...it'll be worth the trip...I promise!! :)

So sorry to hear about your printer - I finally got mine replace last month!

Love this box idea - it's so cute! And really, that's brilliant to stamp on one side then color on the other. Fabulous job! :D

Fantastic result, what a fab idea! My printer is in disgrace for running out of ink at a crucial and very inconvenient moment!
