I took an on-line Copic marker class last year, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I decided that for the two days that we are highlighting Sophia and her wardrobe, I will share some techniques I learned during that class. I have no cards today, just two photos of Sophia in her outfits.
I colored this outfit with red Copic markers and then, using a blue marker, I made a plaid skirt and collar. Pretty easy, right?
Here she is, perhaps dressed for work.
I made the stripes using the Copic colorless blender. "Blender" is really a misnomer . . . it's more like a "color mover." Here is how I achieved the stripes.
First, color the entire area in your color of choice
. . . in my case, blue.
Then, using the blender, start drawing in your stripes. What actually happens is the blue color moves away from where you are striping.
Here is what your striping looks like when you're finished.
I hope you give that fun technique a try. Now it's time to visit the blogs of the rest of the team. Hopefully, you'll get some inspiration from everyone this month. Be sure to comment as often as you can. You might win a free stamp set.
