Copics 102

Hello Flourishes Friends!

It's Cindy here, and I'm excited to bring you a little Copic coloring video tutorial today. I have never done a video tutorial before; but I thought it would be easier for you to see it in action. I hope you find it helpful!

Like Christine, I picked up my very first Copic marker six months ago. I also love to watercolor; so this was quite a learning experience for me as well! I so wish I had these wonderful natural color blends available to me when I first started. I researched for days before I decided on my colors. Flourishes has done all of the work for you! How awesome is that?! Oh, and I must not forget to mention the awesome new Classic White & Ivory paper! It is truly fabulous for coloring with Copics. I really, really love it!

These are the collections I'm featuring today:

Check out the video, and let me know if you have any questions.

Here's the finished card:

Stamps: Nasturtiums
Papers: Classic White, Always Artichoke, Porcelain Designer Paper
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tiger Lily Copic Marker Collection, Evergreen Copic Marker Collection, Daffodil Copic Marker Collection (flower centers)

Copper Finishing Touches Heart Pin and Brads, Ticket Corner Punch, Ivory Crocheted Lace, Moss/Olive Silk Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Dimensionals

Next you'll want to stop by to see what Julie, Latisha, and Stacy have done with the fabulous Flourishes Copic Collections. I happen to know that some of them have tutorials for you too. ;)

Tomorrow, Julie will be here with Copics 103 and another Flourishes Copic Collection. I hope you're enjoying the tutorials this week! Isn't Flourishes awesome?! :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thanks for the great video. I have 5 copic markers but have not played with them much. Guess I'll give that blending technique another try.
