When I saw that Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker Blog was leading
n Online Card Class based on her Coloring Challenge Road Trip,
I just had to sign up.
I have a class this week so I'm really stretched for time, but I
was bad and treated myself to watching Kathy's videos yesterday and
participating in Day 1. What a treat!
I pulled out my Copic markers because I'm not as comfortable with them as with
I'll admit that I struggled. And I'm not super happy with the results.
But only practice will make improvement. Right?
I really made a mistake by using too dark of a violet shade at the base of
the petals. I had to work out a lot of the color with the 0 marker.
I think that will become my favorite marker!
And I didn't leave enough of a sweet spot. So I pulled out a white Supracolor pencil
and sweetened it up.
Here you can see it in close up.
If you stand back a ways, it looks much better. LOL!
I haven't put this on a card yet, because I really need to get ready for my friends to come.
I'll finish it up and show you the finished product in a few days. I hope.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
