My Zig Clean Color markers have been feeling so much love lately that I thought I better bring out my Copics for awhile. Let's just say I had to do some practicing as the techniques are quite a bit different with the different mediums. They both look awesome! After I colored the bunny, I went in with my colorless blender and added a bunch of dots. I wanted to give her a little bit of a texture and loved how it looked! For the balloon I used three different shades of blue and went over it a few times until I got the blend I liked. After it dried I went over it with my Wink of Stella. I sure do love sparkle! I added a few white dots to the bird, some highlights on the bunny and the white dots on the balloon. For the clouds I went around the inside with a very thin line of blue and blended it out with the colorless blender. I colored the entire background with BG11 and BG10.
Then I was left with trying to figure out how to get a sentiment on the card! I hate to cover anything up! So I dug around and found the cloud die in the Skys the Limit die set. I cut it out using vellum and lightly went around the edge with a blue copic. I heat embossed the sentiment from Say it Big using platinum embossing powder. We all know how hard it is to adhere vellum without it showing but I remembered I had some of that Kooltak clear foam tape. I am in love! I strategically placed it behind some of the bigger letters and it worked perfect! You might be seeing a lot more vellum in the future!
