Coloring Images with Copic Markers!

 Coloring Images with Copic Markers!
Or any other markers that blend together!

Let's get sidetrack first:
 You are Outstanding in your Field!
Haha, love the scarecrow this time of year!
I like simple cards because they are so easy to mail...if they are too bulky or covered in
 embellishments they cost extra to mail...so I go simple and highlight the image.

Let's learn how to
 Color Images with Copic Sketch Markers!
Ink an image using Memento Ink.
I'm using Royal Cutie Pies from The Greeting Farm!
 I like pale skin...so I use E00, E000 and E0000...
But basically you just need 3 colors in the tone you want.

 I start with the lightest and color all the skin.
 Then move to the darkest shade (E00) and color the shadow areas...
 Around the hairline, cheeks, etc.
Then blend the areas together with the in-between color!
 Next I use R00 and R20 for the cheeks!
Just a little R20 on the cheeks and blended out with the R00
 For the hair, I'm going light...
so 3 shades in the same color family again.
 Start with lightest,
 then darkest...then blend!
 For the blues, I use 2 shades and keep it simple...
 Then cut out the image.
I used glitter cardstock, a doily, a paper flower, a yellow brad
and some mounting foam tape.
 Cut the doily in half and glue it on the card like this.
 Stack the flowers, add the brad and hook it on the card...

 Then add some mounting foam to the back of the image...
and place her right on top!
Perfect and simple!
