Wife's Creation

Copic Tidbit;
Today I want to talk about colors that are difficult to blend. Two colors that come to mind are Red and Black. Today I'll discuss Red. With this color group you need to use more colors. Instead of 3 use 5. My favorite numbers for red are R20,R22,R24,R27,R29. With R29 and R27 there is not much difference between the two. Lay down the R29 first then the R27 blending from the R29. Then progressively move to the lighter colors. Using this method you will be able, with practice, to get a good blending of red.

Todays card is one that my wife made. She does pretty good. She won't use my Copics,she uses her Pro-Markers by Letraset. She does not have the colors that I have with the Copics, but she does a great job with what she has.

I be happy when I can get back to coloring. Hopefully in two weeks.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Thanks for the tip on blending. I have always started with my lightest red first and the results are awful-so much ink spreading outside the image:/

    I don't know your wife's name, Bob, but please tell her that her card is coloured beautifully and I think she should join the Magnolia Group as well. The two of you have great talents!!
    Thanks once again for another great Copic Hint!
    Hugs, Candy

    Great card- love the coloring and the tartan ribbon! Great festive card. I love all of your tips- to start dark with the reds, you have to know where the shading would be first- I am working on this! Thanks again and love the great card!

    It doesn't look like you had a difficult time blending to me! Just gorgeous. It is so cute seeing a male enjoy this hobby.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.
