Yesterday I had my last round of cataract surgery on my left eye. I can now spot a flea on a cat at 100 feet. I'll have to wait two weeks until I can be fitted for glasses for the remaining corrections.
Copic Buying Tidbit:
When buying Copic markers, I try to buy them in blending groups. So for instance if I'm interest in a light BG (Blue Green) color, I would buy a BG01, BG05, and a BG07. The BG07 would be the shadow color. If I wanted a deeper shadow, I would use BG09. If you buy your marker in blending groups as a Light, Mid-tone, and shadow, you build up good useful blending groups. Try to keep the marker seperated by 2 to 3 digits. What ever you do, do not buy random colors, just because they look good on the color chart. This will keep you from having a bunch of random markers that do not blend well.
The card today, because of my vision problems, was done about a week ago. The stamp is from "The Angel Company" and is called "Oceans of Love". It's a cute stamp that provides plenty of open areas to color and blend. The background paper is from K&C Company and has glitter and Crystal Lacquer already on it.
It's a very simple card, but I think quite cute. The colors for the Copic Marker used are listed below;
Boat & Oar: E30,E31,E34 Bears: E13,E15,E17 Boy Shirt & Water: B01,B04,B06 Girls Blouse:YG01,YG03,YG05 Girls Hat: RV00.RV02,RV04
Hope you enjoy it. Happy coloring.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
