Watercolors vs Copics using MFT’s Farm Friends

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog!  I have two cards for you today.  I thought it would be fun to create basically the same card but use two different mediums to color in my stamped images.  I chose Prima watercolors and Copic markers.  The card on the left is my watercolor card, and I stamped my images onto Canson XL Watercolor paper using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.  The card on the right is my Copic marker card, and I stamped my images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.


I used my Mini Misti to stamp my images onto the paper.  Even though the paper was longer than the Misti, it stamped up just fine.  I used a mask over the cow, so I could stamp the tree behind him.


When an image is suppose to appear white, like my little cow, I have to remind myself to paint with a light touch, so it doesn’t end up looking gray.  My watercolor technique was wet brush on dry paper–I feel it gives me a little more control.  When I color in flowers, I do like to wet the images with clean water and then drop the color onto the paper.


Below is the Copic version of this card.  I really couldn’t say which version of this card I like better.  I feel the same way about the mediums I used–I don’t know if I like watercolors or Copics better.  I love them both!


Here is the video I created for this card.  You can watch it here of on my YouTube Channel.  Thanks for stopping by!!
