Hiya my crafting friends! I'm back today to share a card that I made out of a practice piece I colored in Mindy Baxter's Copic Create with Markers Mega class. Check it out here. I have been having a great time with the class. I had to take a short break due to a family vacation but I plan to be back at it again shortly. I think I'm down to the last couple of sections (trees, grass, etc.). Then I hope to take her Creating with Backrgrounds class! I love learning more and more about using my Copic markers. I am always looking to improve my skills. I highly recommend you check her classes out. She even has a free class to try out!
The section I just completed was on coloring transparent items. In particular, balloons. In the past I have just colored balloons that overlapped as a solid color with no transparency. NO MORE! Check out my results...
I am amazed at how simple she makes it seem! I was able to follow her instructions to achieve beautiful results the very first time I colored the image. I just love how it turned out. I can see myself coloring a lot more balloons in my future.
The gray layer is Going Gray cardstock from Stampin Up. The blue layer is Pacific Point also from Stampin Up. I used the Roses all over background stamp from MFT Stamps and embossed it with white embossing powder. The aqua layer is Cool Caribbean from Stampin Up. The balloon layer was cut using a die from the Fancy Frames set from Craftin Desert Divas. I did add a little glossy accents for a little extra highlight. The sequins are from my stash (most likely from Pretty Pink Posh). The birthday die and stamp are from Lawn Fawn.
I appreciate you stopping by! Remember to check out Mindy's full line of classes here.
