Happy Birthday Step by Step Copics

Here is an other Magnolia Design Team card. I used last weeks sketch from Beate. I totally forgot to upload this card earlier. I thought the way you had to cut the paper looks great with the new Magnolia wall stamp.

All supplies for this card can be found at Magnolias online store. Except the patterend paper. I do not remember the name of this DP, i used up some scraps.

I had recently many questions regarding the Copic markers. I would like to show you how "I" start to color but i would like to stress that iam not certified and have no training. Many of the stampers here in the US take special Copic classes, on how to use these high end markers. So i do not know if this is all right on how i color. I think a good sorce to learn on how these markers can be used is also over at my Magnolia Design Team mate. She does an outstanding job with these markers.

Okay here it goes... i did not upload these pics very big but you can click on them and see the details. First i pick my markers to match my DP
I wanted to show you how great you can shade with these markers so i used greys and bowns to color my wall.
I used the lightest brown color E31 to just blend over all the colors
this is the complete colored wall. I did use later my blenderpen to lift some color off certain spots
This is how your backside should look like. If the CS is well saturated with ink you will have no streaks what you will usually have if you do use your waterbased markers.
Here are some pics with Edwin. First i colored with light blue his pants and added shades with a darker blue.
Than i blend over with a light blue again blending the 2 shades of blue. using later again the blender pen to add highlights.
