Hello everyone! It’s Sandy, back again with a Copic post that’s just a little different! I tried to combine several things: matching Copics to the colors in the recent Daybreak release – and showing you how you can get just a little bit of dimension using just a single Copic marker. (GASP! Yes! One marker!)
First, the Copic matching…this was fun, but a challenge! I made this pretty little chart to photograph…I provided some alternate options for the greys, since I know lots of folks don’t own the T and N series. (They don’t come in the standard Papercrafts A and Papercrafts B sets, which are most common among our type of users….but the C and W markers do appear in those sets.) The lighter colors of the petals that are at the inside of the flower (beside the blue center) are the colors with just a little Copic marker; the outside edges have several layers of the color, so they’re darker.
In the video, I’ll show you how I layered colors to create just a little dimension on the flowers – with just one marker for each one.
Mod Window die in the video….for those who have patience, I hope you try it – the detail is just yummy! I die cut pieces from several colors, put scotch tape on the back of the outline, then put the pieces back in like a puzzle.
Here’s hoping you have lots of flowers peeking up in your garden now that spring is here! See you next time!
