Happy Easter (Copic Creations Challenge: Coloring Embellishments with Copics)
Coloring embellishments with Copics is one of my favorite things to use them for so Copic Creations Challenge 22 was "right up my alley"! My Easter card includes both ribbon and gemstones colored with Copics. I also colored the flowers and stems on my little Easter egg, but they are so tiny there was no chance to do any shading - LOL! I used white sheer ribbon & colored it first with Copic V15 (Mallow) and then added V17 (Amethyst) to just the edges to darken them -- LOVE how it turned out! The flower center gems & gems on my sentiment tag were also colored with Copic V17. I had colored the lavender gem on my ribbon with V17, but I didn't like it, so used 91% Isopropyl Alcohol to remove it, leaving the original color which better coordinates with my tag and egg. Fun to experiment with Copics to get just the result you want!
