Box Board

Melissa put our 0.6mm Box Board to the test with her Copic colours and alcohol inks. Her overall feedback is:

  • It has a great thickness and texture
  • It has a good ‘kraft’ colour
  • It cuts smoothly with a trimmer
  • It’s not suitable for Copic Colouring
  • It is great for ink blending
  • It would make a great background card

Copic Colouring Test

Products used for this test

Ink Used for Image:  MFT Extreme Black
Ink Used for Sentiment:  Versafine Clair Nocturne
Medium used for Colouring:  Copic Markers
Other Products Used:  Shimmer Pen & Glossy Accents

Thoughts after the test

  • Did not stamp well on the smooth side, the ink soaked in even after stamping it a few times.  So I used the rough side of the card.
  • It was hard to colour with Copic Markers on this card.  It was very ‘scratchy’ and very hard to blend.  The colour soaked in even after applying it twice and once completely dry, it doesn’t look good at all, it’s very spotty.
  • The Shimmer Pen and Glossy Accents did not warp this card at all.

Ink Blending Through Stencil

Products used for this test

First Ink Used:  Hero Arts, Hero Hues Unicorn White
Other: Ink Used:  Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers
Other Products Used:  Blending Brush

Thoughts after the test

First, I blended the white ink onto the card and heat set it. I then Ink blended the Oxide ink over the top. This technique on this card gives a great effect, the colours seem to sit on top of the card and are more vibrant than the Botany card, it’s a great card for this technique.
