Good morning! It's been a LONG week so today's card is one I created a few months ago. It was colored using both Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.
I colored the stamp with light markers to give it a "base coat" of the colors I wanted, not really worrying about shading. This gives a nice boost to the pencils so you don't have to use as many layers. On this card I chose the papers for the background before I started coloring - see my posts about matching Copics to specific colors. In this instance, I went with the lightest shade of markers.
One of the really nice things about pencils is that the color you see in the lead is
what you get - no chart needed. With markers there is the cap color and the ink color - not
always exactly the same - which is why a chart comes in handy. So, you don't
need a chart with pencils but you do need a good eye for color. (But know that you can always adjust!)
Thanks for visiting today - I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm looking forward to mine!
