More with Copics

Hello Friends
It was art time this afternoon! This beautiful rose image is by Inkadinkado. All coloring is with Copic markers. The light halo around the image is with Y11... I definitely need a lighter yellow so I can achieve a very soft halo around my images. I ordered a Y00, waiting (rather impatiently) on delivery. To finish the card I used my 2nd largest oval nestabilities die to cut the open area and applied dimensionals to the back and placed my image under that so my frame lifts off the image.
Copics used: R20, R32, YR07, R17, Y11, YG03, G99

This hummingbird acres image from Inkadinkado I've used before. It's a great stamp and the drawing style is very forgiving. This time I wanted orange flowers on a sunny day. I colored in a base coat of Y11 on the flowers and layered the other colors over it. They blended exactly how I wanted them to. Love that!! I die cut the image with nestabilities and cut the oval from black to layer behind. Texture (swiss dot cuttlebug folder) was added to the white layer and a gathered rick rack to embellish.
Copics used: Y11, Y17, YR04, YR07, R29, YG11, G07, G28, W3, E79

Your cards are beautiful and your coloring is amazing. Aren't copics fun. I have to agree that using light colors is the best way to blend for me also.
