Sweet Stamp: A Walk in the Park, Part 2 of Copic Coloring.

Here we are ready for part 2 of my discussion regarding Copics.  I am a fan of using my paper to help me choose which markers are best.  When I use colors and the associated "logical" blending group, the image often will not go well with the paper once complete.  This process of choosing markers based on colors within the paper, seems to solve this issue.
So in Part 2,  I will show this process in action!

The Card
You Tube: Part2, The coloring.

This card is very straight forward.  The image was a digital from Sweet Stamps. Glam Girl Heather.
After re sizing in Photoshop, I printed it on my Canon Ink Jet printer.  Neenah Classic Crest, Solar White 80# is primarily what I used when coloring with copics.

Using the Paper, Sweet Lizzy, Lucky Charm by American Crafts, the Copic Markers were chosen.  The video shows this process.  Then the blending colors were added and the image colored.
Final step was to mount this onto an 5.5 inch by 5.5 inch White Card Base.  The seam tape was colored with the same Pink Copic markers, a perfect match.

A closer view of the Frenchie.  The coloring for this image was inspired by a photo of my own TigerLilly, right down to those pink ears.
