Copic Sketch 0000 Markers

I got my set of Copic Sketch very pale 0000 markers today! I feel like a kid at Christmas! They are such pretty, very light colors and since I took the Copic Certification class recently, I now see why they will be so helpful with blending.
TIP: I always thought the marker called "blender" was for just that---blending, but I learned that is not the case. The "blender" marker is actually used to erase little mistakes such as bleeding outside the lines of your image, or "picking-up" color to imitate fur, maybe streaks in hair, or a sweater. Did you know you can moisten a piece of an old washcloth with blender solution and "dab" it on an image you've colored with your Copic markers and create "spots" such as frog's skin (see below), or the look of a worn pair of blue jeans, or a fuzzy sweater? It's a really good look with hardly any effort at all!. It's called "Dirty Rag" technique. Try it!

Today I made a "cutesy" card of a little girl playing in the rain. I love to create little girl cards because I have a beautiful four year old granddaughter that I simply adore, and these cards always make me think of her!

The recipe for this rainy day girl is:

  • Girl stamp---Belinda Bumberboots from Stamping Bella
  • Sentiment stamp---Judith Stamps
  • Cuttlebug "Dots" embossing folder for white CS background
  • Yellow CS ---American Crafts using the oval and scalloped oval Nestbilities
  • Ink---Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Ribbon---May Arts
  • Stickles glitter glue used on wings, rain drops and puddle
  • Copic markers---Y08, Y15, YR23, RV02, RV04, RV06, R00, R20, B12, and B93

I hope this might cheer up any "Under The Weather" girl and she'll be having FUN IN THE SUN soon!
