Well thanks to your helpful comments I figured out how to put a title in.....yay! So no I haven't been trying to figure that out all this time, rather I have been having fun playing with my Copics. It is a real steep learning curve trying to figure it out! I use Copic Ciao and sketch. They are both wonderful, but the sketch offers the option of airbrush. The other thing with these wonderful markers is that paper makes a huge difference. I have had good success with SU whisper White. You want a paper that doesn't absorb the ink right away or you won't be able to blend. So a coating of some sort is essential. Now after all that playing, my card that I'm showing does not use Copics. I will have some stuff to show later this week with the coloring I achieved but for now I decided to post the second card I made for last weeks challenge. The card post below shows my first attempt. I found this to be really interesting with the triangle and the circle. In this card I decided to move the triangle to the corner to make it look a bit different from the other layouts.
stamps: Garden Silhouettes, Delight in Life, Paisley BG, PSX wood nymph
paper : River Rock, Always Artichoke, Wasabi, Pomegranate, Old Olive, Garden Green
Ink : Garden Green, Old Olive, River Rock, Tea dye ink
acc : Tombow Markers, SU markers, white signo gel pen, Sakura stardust pen, SU flower
punch from punch box, Prima Rose leaves, Cuttlebug corner embellishment, SEI brad
Ranger liquid pearl medium, Krylon gold leaf pen.
I started by punching out multiple flowers with the Pomegranate. I then used a large embossing ball to depress the centre and dotted three white dots in the centre of each flower. Next I aged my river rock card with its own ink, and placed the Artichoke on top. The Artichoke is stamped with Garden Silhouettes and the images are highlighted with signo and Sakura pens. The circles are Pomegranate and olive on top. The Pomegranate is lined with the Gold Krylon. The circle is sponged with olive and Garden Green ink. The triangle is River Rock stamped with Paisley in Olive and adhered and cut to fit. I painted and cut my image, placed it in centre and placed flowers all around. I then dotted with the liquid pearl . The large flower was stamped, water colored and cut and then reverse embossed and finally adhered. The greeting was done last.
I hope you enjoy your Sunday!
