I couldn't wait to use them on the mosaic vase from this month's free with Free with Three "Friendship Blooms" set. Just a dab to each little section gave such a vivid, sparkling color! Turn it back and forth in the light and it looks like like shimmery, colored glass!! The coloring went so quick, they're really juicy, just touch it to the paper, its like it drops a dab of ink and then quickly dries, I LOVE 'EM!! Be sure to enlarge the pic to see more detail, but trust me it even looks better IRL!*) I used my regular Copics on the flowers(still would have been pretty but I didn't want the flowers to look like part of the vase!).
I couldn't be more pleased with the results, they are even more sparkly than I imagined and the twelve shades offered in the pack are terrific! (all the colors of the rainbow PLUS a few more and metallics, I used 7 of them in the vase) The way each colors reflects the light also allow them to coordinate with even more shades of your CS, which is such a bonus. Color, sparkle, and FAST drying time all in ONE easy step make these a terrific value! Thumbs up! They aren't even in the same league with glitter gel pens you see at craft stores in case you're wondering, the quality of these are just top notch.
To finish up the card I cut it off-center in my Classic Rectangle Nestabilitie to make it look like it was sitting in a window sill(didn't have time to make a whole window today!) and thought it would be fun to create a mosaic strip for the middle with the self-adhesive rhinestones (these colors look sooo gorgeous with the Spica colors)! The many sparkling stones in different sizes remind me of all the little facets that make up a friendship, just like the greeting says. :)
*and really cool, it puts kind of a lacquer glaze on it to that you can feel when you rub your finger over it, like glass! :)
