Today I’d like to share one of my newest favorite products – Kirarina pens from Copic. For my project, I’ve used WiNK pens but there are three additional types as well so I’d like to briefly touch on each one. All are available individually or in sets.
- 2win – Water based/scented. Each marker is duel-tipped and features a light and dark shade of each color as well as both chisel and fine tips. Perfect for doodling. Works best on regular copy paper or stationery.
- 2win Oil based – Double-ended/fine and round nib markers featuring two colors on one pen; for use on any surface.
- WiNK – Multi-purpose/metallic pen works on a variety of surfaces and look great on light and dark surfaces.
- Cute -3d, scented puff paint. Hand washable after 72-hour dry time. Can be used on paper crafts to add a bit of dimension to projects.
Here is my card using multi-purpose WiNK pens.
With a bit of a steady hand, this is SO easy.
For my design I used Lime, Dandelion, Strawberry, Orange, White and Lavender.
The pens are similar to a paint pen. Shake several times (you’ll hear the ball rolling around mixing the ink and glitter), remove cap and press tip onto scrap paper a time or two to begin the flow of color. Because paper is porous, you’ll want to move the pen fairly slowly across the paper to achieve the best results. Re-cap, shake a bit more and re-press tip to scrap paper as needed to keep the color flowing.
Using black dye ink, stamp image onto black card stock. Allow to completely dry. I tried black hybrid ink but as it dried, it disappeared into the paper, making it very difficult (or impossible) to trace.
Before using the pens, examine the lines and objects within the stamped image. Since WiNK color can be layered, you’ll first want to trace the lines that fall behind others.
The flower stems in the image I’ve used (Best Buds by Paper Smooches) go into the opening of the jar so they will appear “behind” the outline.
With the Lime pen, trace the stems and leaves.
Trace the jar with Lavender, moving pen over the flower stems as necessary. The purple lines will cover the green as you trace over. (Cool, huh?)
Next, I traced two of the flowers in Strawberry.
I then added a bit of Dandelion…
…then accents of white. I love all the WiNK pens but the white is my favorite. It is AMAZING.
Stamp the sentiment in black ink. Wait a few minutes (or more) for the ink to dry.
Trace using White.
One additional tip – I found that small mistakes can be carefully scraped away from the paper using a craft knife. The purple lines around the rim of the jar were a little close together in places so I used the point of a craft knife to scrape away a bit of ink from between the lines.
The Kirarina WiNK pens are so much fun to use. I want them ALL!
Thanks for stopping by today!
