Anyway, here is my favorite card for Magnolia. I know it's called Khaki Tilda but I had to match her dress to the paper. And, I used some Copics! Now, I bought a lot of Copics a while ago, used them a few times, but really wasn't crazy about them. They were just not my style. I felt the look they created was too 'graphic-designed', like it was colored digitally on a computer. I like the artistic look, the pencil strokes, the watercolor washes, the texture, etc. So I sold all my Copics and was content to use my vast colored pencil collection. So why am I using Copics, you may ask?
Well, I hate mixing colors. Absolutely HATE it, and will avoid it if at all possible. That's not to say I don't mix colors when coloring with CP's or water colors, but I don't like having to mix a certain color all the time. Like the blue-green of Tilda's dress for example. I just don't have a CP out of all the brands I have that is close enough to it. (It's actually similar to Papertrey Ink's Ocean Tides). And because I love Ocean Tides, and use it a LOT, I looked for some other medium I could find a similar color in. That's where the Copic marker came in. So, I only have maybe a dozen colors to match the colors I can't seem to find in colored pencil. I'm not converting to Copic, don't worry! No way in the world I could afford all the colors I want, LOL! Plus I love my colored pencils too much!
Oh, and BTW, don't go crazy looking for a rock stamp that Tilda is sitting on at the Magnolia site, I drew it by hand!
I have tons of stuff to share with you, so keep coming back!
