Getting used to Copics
I'm still trying to sort out what goes with what as far as shades of Copics are concerned. I bought 2x 32 pen sets plus a set of skin tones and I have been trying to amalgamate the various pens into colour families.
I had a good tip from my friend Victoria, who suggested that I try out the colours on card and label the colours used to see a true representation of what the shades will appear like on my cards. I found this very useful!
When you manage to select complementary colours, using Copics is just like magic. I love it. I really think however, that some additional purchases may be necessary!
This image is from Dustin Pike, I love his dinosaurs. I think this would be good either to give to a child or for a child to give to an adult. It's cute anyway!
The sketch is from The Pink Elephant. I have taken a little licence with it, but for this image I think it works really well! I added a sentiment, in this case it's from Cuddly Buddly, mounted on Nesties.
I'm pleased with this one, I hope you like it
