Copic X-Press It Blending paper

Count me as a convert to this newest product offered the copic people at Imagination International!  I purchased a package of this paper which was specially selected by copics to used with their markers.    It is silky smooth, blends beautifully and is a nice bright white. 

One of the best things I like about this paper is that I can run it through my printer for digital images.  The paper I have used in the past for copics (Papertrey, GinaK, Flourishes) were all too heavy for my printer so I ended up using cheaper cardstock for printing my digis and as a result only got “ok” results when using copics.

This morning I printed out a page of butterflies from a  Sweet n Sassy digi set and went to work on trying out different colors.  I love the results!  The blending capabilities of this paper is superior to what I have tried before, plus I love how smooth it feels!  Here is just a little sample of my testing:

After I colored in a few butterflies I stamped several images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored those as well.  The paper and markers worked just as well with a stamped image as with a printed image.  

The only drawback to this paper is its price.  At $48  for 125 sheets (at oozak.com)  it’s a bit on the pricey side.  This will be one paper that I only use for copic coloring and nothing else!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
