Copics are Addicting!

 

 

 

 

I’ve never been artistic. I can’t draw, and up until recently I wasn’t even great at coloring. Until I found Copic markers. These things are like crack – I purchased 9 to experiment with them. Suddenly I’ve found myself with 50+ markers and all I want to do is buy more! What makes Copics so amazing? The are alcohol based, so you can layer and blend color without worrying that the paper will pill. They are great for adding dimension, shadows, highlights and lowlights, etc.

This dragon and the birthday cake were stamped directly onto the cardstock, then colored. I tried to add dimension by using low and highlights, then adding some shadows in around the dragon and cake.

The above two are more of the same. The images are all on a single layer. The only things to add dimension are the use of colors, and a touch of glitter from Stickles on the frog prince card.

The stud muffin card is a mix. The tray is stamped and shadowed using markers, then the actual muffin was cut out and layered onto foam tape adding some actual dimension.
