Fall is Near
Well, I decided to go ahead and take this image that I colored in my hotel room in Milwaukee and turn it into a card. The interesting thing was, I only had a few of my Copic markers with me. I can't recall which ones, but I know I only had three shades of each color, as I didn't want to fly with my entire set. My point...you can do a lot with just a few markers. You don't need every single color that is made....sure, they're fun to collect...but, it is kinda an interesting exercise to limit your markers and see what you can do with them. You start to see that you can have two shades of a color just by "wet shading" with the same marker (just one orange marker). Highlights can be made with a lighter color (in this case, yellow) and shadows made with a darker color (reds, browns).
This image was an image I received to color during the certification class earlier that day. My guess is it is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White paper. It is a Karen Lockhart image. I figure it is better to turn it into a card, rather than have it sit in my folder.
Though I'm not ready for fall, it was fun making this card.
