What's in YOUR Pouch?
I'm back with that hoppin' image from the other day (I sent this card out to one of my Hippy Mentions today, but changed the greeting, as I really have no idea when her birthday is!) I goofed and went outside the lines with my brown when coloring and couldn't get it to go away enough with the blender, so I just decided his shadow would have to be brown and piled a bunch more on(because you KNOW I'M not stamping it over again!) I needed some colors I didn't have Copics for and I'm just still much better with shading with my watercolor crayons, so I used them on the balloons with my Aquapainter. The rose and green balloons are popped up on dimensionals. When I drew this image I knew the pouch was ripe with possibilities, couldn't wait to have a bunch of balloons streaming out! (wait til you see my NEXT balloon card-HEE!) The DP is from my DCVW adhesive mat pack. I made the zigzag border with my deco scissors.
TIP: I only *just* cut apart my "hoppy" from the "birthday"! With these unmounted stamps it is so easy to get them lined up on the acrylic blocks if I want them "stacked" or next to each other, I'm so glad I did it, much easier than omitting and cleaning...
s you can see, I still need work with the Copics!! Some areas look pretty good, others not so much. Unsolved mysteries: Can someone tell me why some leave NO lines (pink) and others do(brown)? And why some practically disappear altogether when applying the colorless blender to them(brown) and others remain unchanged???(PINK!) I'd love to know!!
EDITED TO ADD: Thank YOU to all the Copic pros who took one look at my stripey kangaroo "emergency" and contacted me!! I will definitely be emailing back, calling etc later, but I have a little boy to take to the museum right now! The short answer to my problem is: Color in CIRCLES, baby!!! I will try tonight! :)
