Red Roses

8:38 PM Edit This 4 Comments »
So, I'm really intrigued by the whole coloring with Copics thing. I love the look with no lines and the shading but I'm not sure it's worth it. Those darn markers are expensive and then I'd probably need to take a class. I was able to get 5 of them to try them out recently but then didn't have the right inkpad to stamp my image! I finally got Memento ink today and have to say I like the inkpad - a true black and it doesn't bleed. I used the markers I had to color the rose image (hostess level 1 set) and it turned out OK, but I think I could've done the same thing with SU! markers and a blender pen. I'll have to test that out.
Anywho - I layered my image on Real Red and used the eyelet border punch at the bottom. My white layer is embossed with the Swiss Dots CB folder and I wrapped a knotted piece of wide red ribbon across it. I like the way it came out. Simple but nice and can be used for lots of occassions.

It's a lovely card, and I agree with you about the copics. Of all the coloring techniques I've tried I think I like best using plain (not watercolor) colored pencils and blending with gamsol.

Lovely card! I like how you used the eyelet border punch only under the image. Also, thanks for visiting my blog. :-)

great card! the red is so sharp! i just got some copics myself--i really like how images turn out when they're outlined with them to get a shadow. but as with any new technique or product, i have to keep practicing. have a great day1
