However, the other day I bought some X-Press It Blending Card (designed for use with Copics), to see if I'd get a good result with my Prismacolors and Odourless Mineral Spirits. I've always used Expression super-smooth card with my Prismacolors, but was curious to see how X-Press It compared. I must say it's pretty good. I still have about half a box of Expression to use up, but, hey, in about 5 years once it's empty, at least I know of a good alternative!
On both cards I have to show you, I've used a cute litte Stampavie image (I've had her for a couple of years, and don't remember her name, sorry!), and some Stampin' Up! products.

The second card I made, which I think is a bit reminiscent of the 1970s with the colours I've used, is going to a friend who is having a very bad run with injury and illness at the moment. Hopefully it'll brighten her day.
