I've been teaching monthly Colors of Copics classes that involve using three Copic markers, from the same color family, to apply color using various techniques. There are so many different looks that you can get from just three Copic markers! So as soon as I saw this month's Copic Creations challenge, I knew I had to participate!
Here's a picture of a card that I submitted for the Copic Creations challenge: Monochrome Copic Coloring (find the challenge here). I don't have any of the Paper Makeup Stamps by the challenge's current sponsor, Katie Cotton, so I used a fairy image that I'm sure could work well with any color scheme.
I stamped The Rubber Cafe images (Woodland Fairy and Anything is Possible) using Memento Grape Jelly ink. Bazzill Smooth cardstock worked nicely with Bazzill Bling and Worldwin DoubleMates Lovely Lilac. I used Copic markers V0000, V000 and V01 for the fairy's wings and skin; V04, V06 and V09 for her dress; V91, V93 and V95 for her hair. I used V12 to airbrush lightly around the image. Colorless Blender faded her skin and wings to white. atyou Spica Clear added magnificent sparkle to her wings and the flowy part of her dress. Prima crystals added a little more bling to the border and image. After using the Martha Stewart border punch, I like to set aside the remaining punched shapes to include as confetti for the inside of the card. A thin Offray ribbon tied it all together.
Creating monochromatic projects using Copic markers, all from the same color family, allows you to apply various Copic techniques for added texture and dimension. Give it a try! You'll like it!
