Learning to Color with Copics

Learning to Color with Copics

I’m going to need a LOT of practice, but these markers are so much fun to color with! I found this old TAC “gift with purchase” stamp in my collection and its size was perfect for this week’s sketch challenge on SCS (SC250). I stamped the snowman with brown Memento ink on Gina K.’s Pure Luxury White card stock and colored it in with the following markers: 0, B91, B93, E25, YG93, YG95, YR07, and W00.

I added the embossed sentiment after the card was already put together. Usually I plan things better, but it needed something on that wider Close to Cocoa border. Luckily, it didn’t come out too bad (although I did take pictures of the card without it, just in case).

Thanks for stopping by!
