When I picked up my Copics, I chose the Sweet Peas set with two Copic Collections that were pretty much made for it! I chose...
Then, I moved in with RV02 and YG03. Keep in mind, I am not blending as I go - just merely adding in more intense color to shade parts of my leaves and flowers. Marcella made it so easy to figure out where to shade with some of the shadows she added in when illustrating this set!
Finally, I added a little more color with YG06 and RV04.
After I added my most intense color (I actually skipped using RV09 from the Hollyhock set because I thought it was too dark for my Sweet Peas), I picked up RV00 and started to blend my colors together using small circular strokes. I absolutely LOVE how Flourishes new Classic White paper blends! It takes a very light hand and is effortless! Trust me, I have tried almost every paper on the market and I was blown away by this paper!
When I was finished, this is what my Sweet Pea looked like! All the brush strokes that were laid down in the beginning are gone to create a smooth looking finish! I love that about Copics. And, after I put it all together and whipped it into a card, this is what my bouquet of Sweet Peas looked like! I used the Spellbinders Ribbon Slides for my message and the sentiment is actually from the Sweet Violets set. Add some paper piercing, some pink rhinestones and... done! Here's a close up of the finished flowers... Some other members of the DT pulled out their favorite Copic Collections to give you a little more of a show and tell! Be sure to stop by and see what
Leslie and Stacy cooked up!
