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!!
