Copic Markers for Card Makers Day 3
Today we were taught how to use grey (the C markers) to add dimension. The first practice image was a coffee cup, using grey on the far left side and blending it in toward the middle with our medium and lightest colors. We had several good video lessons, and all three showed us different ways to blend and use our markers.
We went on to practice on umbrellas, using the grey along the bottom, blending it with the darker then the lighter colors. I didn't like this too much, but I had one that I did better than others:
Everything bled a little over the edges. I think that's what happens when your paper gets too wet. I'm still practicing--a work in progress, so to speak. Please be patient with me as I learn! All of this is starting to make more sense to me, and I'm learning a lot already.
Here are a couple more pictures from yesterday's class. I colored some pretty butterflies and added a deeper color in the center that I did NOT blend so it would be more striking. Hope you like them!
