Doodling with Gasenfude

Hi everyone! Today I needed a card for a friend who is going through a particularly tough time. Simon Says Stamp‘s Uplifting Thoughts was the perfect sentiment set to use. I also wanted to include a floral image so I decided to step out of my comfort zone and use Copic’s Gasenfude nylon brush pen to create my own image.

The Gasenfude pen includes waterbased, black pigment ink that is 100% compatible with Copic markers. It has a super-fine point for detail work and 9mm long bristles for creating a dry brush effect, depending on how you hold and use the pen.

I practiced a bit on scrap paper before trying the pen on X-Press It Blending Card.

After coloring with Copic markers, I used Opaque White to add a few highlights to the two larger flower centers.

Thanks so much for visiting! 🙂
