I'm beginning to bore myself starting out posts with the "long time no post" mantra!!
I've been spending most of my free time developing my copic class materials that I haven't had much desire to actual sit down and color and create a card. It's been a education for myself sitting down and sorting out how I learned to color...what worked, what didn't, what was frustrating and what helped finally make it all click. I've been picking out what blending groups were the best when I first picked up the markers and which stamps weren't overwhelming to learn to color with. It's been a challenging journey, but hopefully, it'll make my classes a bit of fun and take as much of the stress out of learning copics as possible!
Well let's admit, those of us who use copics have an ongoing love/hate relationship with those damn markers, so I'm not sure I can take all of the stress out!
So on to today's card. I found this lovely Simply Betty digi floating around on my computer, calling my name and begging to be used before spring arrived!
This sweet pair is called Rio and Frosty. I've paired them up with some papers from Bo Bunny (I think it's called Sweet Tooth). The die cut snowflakes are from MFT and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
Per my norm, I colored them up with copics. As I was putting blending groups together, I realized there are a lot of my markers I don't use (shame on me) or I don't use them enough. As I looked back at my cards, it seemed like I was always using the same colors, so I'm going to try and give some lovin to all my markers. The hot pinks were done with RV19, 17, 14, 13. I'd forgotten how challenging this group could be, but I think I worked out the ickies by reblending and then reblending some more. The boots were done with E99, 97, 95 and 93. The teals were done with BG18, 55, 53.
Thanks for swinging by today and a big welcome to my wonderful new followers!!
