Carol and I have nearly reached the end of our white board line with Tando - just one more project to share after this. We decided to find ways to add colour direct to the board today, just to take full advantage of the fact that it's white so there's no priming or covering required.
I tried out my Copics and a detailed stamp - the board took the stamped impression nicely and the Copic ink blended fine and didn't bleed out of the stamped lines.
I know the arch is really supposed to have the point at the top but looking at it upside down reminded me of a tulip so I made a little hanging thing-a-ma-jig to say hello to spring (we finally have frog spawn here so maybe spring really has sprung). I pushed the ends of the wire into little metal beads so there was a big enough surface area just to glue them to the top of the piece.
Here's a detail shot of her face and hair so you can see how the Copics blended on the board.

Carol's project is up on the Tando blog as well if you fancy seeing her colour crazed chippie too!
