Happy Thursday Everyone,
Today I'm sharing an adorable new image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called Love Birds. I wanted to do a little something that looked different so I colored this pair of little birds up on Kraft cardstock. I used Copic's of course but I added a bunch of shading with my Prisma pencils as well. I played along with the January OCS Challenge Sketch with a couple of my own modifications. You can find the OCS Challenge HERE
This is the 2nd card I have done on Kraft and I have found that when using my Copics it is best to test the color first. Some colors dry darker some much lighter than you might think. So I started to create my own little index card system. I will add to this each time I want to play with a new color combo. I am using American Craft cardstock and that is what my index cards are made from. Each brand of cardstock will react differently to the marker so it is a great idea to find a brand you like and work with that. This is my index system, at least for now.
Copics I used for this card...
Heart Leaves - BG72, BG71 (I made this color with BG78 & BG72) with Peacock Blue Prisma
Scroll - BG72, BG10 with Aquamarine & Light Aqua Primsa
Left Bird - E97, E95, E93 with Pumpkin Orange Prisma
Right Bird - E41, E42, E43 with Light Umber Prisma
Shading around birds - Yellow Ochre Primsa
Background Shading - Light Aqua Prisma
You can't tell from the picture but I did add a bunch of sparkle to the scroll and leaves with Clear Wink of Stella.
Have a wonderful day!
