Another combo and my Copics attempt

Okay, so I am persevering with the Copics (they are sooo hard to use lol - must be 'cos I'm on the dim side). The first attempt went in the bin, so I went and had another look at all the tutorials on You Tube (I think I know them all off by heart now rofl) then had another attempt. This one is a bit better - but still got a loooooong way to go till I am happy with the result, it's the shading that I am really struggling with. I am so used to how easy it is to shade with inks and twinks so the Copics have been a rude awakening to say the least. Thank you Rach, Jacqui and Donalda for all your support and encouragement - you ladies are THE BEST mwah xx

So, here's my effort - don't all laugh at once now ya hear!! I have used the fabulous sketch on Stamp with Fun - love this sketch and will for sure wear this one out with all the use lol. I have used BG Wisteria papers and my new DT stamp from Motivet - how cute is Hilda!! I am also entering this card in A Spoonful of Sugar – Floral Fantasy.

    You have done an amazing job sweetie with your colouring, like i said to you before.. your first attempt is so much better than my first attempt.. you have done a fabulous job with the blending, takes a bit of time to get used to the copics but you look like you are well on your way already sweetie.. keep up the great work..

  63. Beautiful Bev! I know what you mean about those copics. I still prefer my distressed inks, but sometimes you need that bright color and I use copics. My shading leaves much to be desired with copics. Anyhow, I do love the card this hippo looks like she is having sooo much fun! Hugs, Dena

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Bev, I know what you mean about shading, you have to be careful you dont do it to dark, anyway I think youve done a brilliant job with them, so dont give it up. Brilliant card by the way, and the details again are gorgeous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

  79. Hi Bev

    I think your colouring is fantastic hun!! its sometimes so hard to move from one medium to another especially when you have perfected the distress inks...I moved from water colours to promarkers and nearly threw them all in the bin but now I love them!, wouldnt say its perfect but i learn new teqniques every day and could not be without them....

    sorry hun I waffled lol!

  116. Absolutely adorable. You say you need to learn but Sweetie, I would say you HAVE learned. You have arrived! Learn no more. I have been working with the Copics for over a year now and am not half as good as you. I keep thinking if I buy more colors that will help. All that gets me is poorer!
