Kia ora Koutou
I have been teaching myself how to colour with Copic markers and I have started taking classes through Kit and Clowder. I have coloured for many years and recently I have been using Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers but I have got arthritis in my hands and holding the pens are getting harder for me. So I decided that this year I would look into learning how to colour with Copics as the pens are much easier for me to grip and I have more control. I will post pictures of the classes I have taken so as to show my journey in coming posts.
For my card today I have used a Woodware Craft Collection stamp called Anemone. It is a fairly simple stamp to colour in and good to practice my techniques. I have used a colour combination from one of the classes I have taken which is so pretty. I am still working on my ‘flicks’ and control and it will be interesting to colour this stamp again some time in the future to see how I progress in my colouring journey. However, I am pleased with how I am going and have to set a timer for me to colour in as I enjoy it so much.
For my card base I have used a fabulous embossing folder from Altenew called ‘Wicker Texture’ and then I have added a small frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rectangles to create some interest in the background and also to ground the flower. The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Lyrical Layered Florals Clear Stamp and Die set. I have kept the background clean and simple to allow the vibrant coloured flower to be the hero.
