Originally, I had planned to watercolor it (because GORG); but I had just come off a couple of days of really pushing myself out of my comfort zone with watercolor. So, I just really wanted the comfort of my Copics. I chose a unique color combo for roses, using a selection of blue violet Copic Markers. It was a fun process, even if it created a pretty lengthy video. 😉
This card was definitely more fru fru than I’ve made in quite some time. I pulled out some old Spellbinders Label dies. These are Labels Eight and Decorative Labels Eight. Both of these are still available in the Spellbinders store. Just click the links above.
The ribbon is white seam binding that I dyed with a coordinating Copic Marker. Easy peasy. I finished the card details with a smattering (such a fun word) of white sequins.
I printed the rose in pale gray ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, and colored it with the following Copic Markers.
I really didn’t use all that many markers for this one! You can watch me color the image in the video below, and maybe glean some Copic coloring tips along the way. I’ve included a brief lesson in Copic color theory in this video. I hope you learn something new & enjoy!
There’s one step I neglected to mention in the video, and that’s the addition of white gel pen “speckles” & “spatter” on the background around the image. It added a bit of wonderful whimsy to the already-speckled background, and I’m kinda digging how it turned out. 🙌🏻
Have a most amazing day, friends!
