I've started to use my Copics on colored cardstock, experimenting with different color combos. In this case, I used Papertrey Ink's Aqua Mist cardstock and stamped the large rose from Waltzingmouse Roses in Bloom with Paris Dusk Memento ink. Then I colored part of the petals with Snow Green (BG0000) and Ice Ocean (BG72) Copic Sketch markers. I added a ribbon and a sentiment and some white gel pen accents. (I have no dark blue ribbon -- how did this happen??)
I'm not sure about this color combo -- there may be a bit too much contrast for me, but it is fun to experiment.
The nice thing about coloring on colored cardstock? You really don't need to do a whole lot of shading. The cardstock hides a lot of imperfections and you achieve a variety of looks.
Blogger question -- my other blog is on typepad. I can't get my photos here to be any larger. Otherwise, only a portion of the photo posts. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong??
