Ya know how I totally stunk at the January Copic challenge? Well there was a bit of a reason for that! I joined the MarkerPOP design team again!! So rather than getting burnt out making daily coloring vids, I decided to hold back & plan something super spectacular for you guys – A NEW video series!! 😀
I am so excited to be designing for MarkerPOP again. I love MP soo much. So today I have FOUR videos for you to go along with my first MarkerPOP day as a new design team member. And I made a card! LOL
There is a giveaway over on my MarkerPOP blog post so be sure to head over there & enter the giveaway!!
Before we get to my new video series, I wanted to share my MarkerPOP haul with you guys. I picked up a bunch of great goodies in the store.
NEW VIDEO SERIES:
Today, I am kicking off our new video series: Learning Copics with MarkerPOP! Every other week, I will be sharing a new Learning Copics video with you!! I am really excited to start this new series. We’re going to start out with the very very basics and build up to some more advanced and intricate lessons.
To start things off, today’s video is just a very basic 2 color blending tutorial. If you’ve been Copic-ing (he he, yay for making up words!) for long, you are probably a pro at basic 2 color blending already. If you are newer to Copics, then practice this technique a bunch & make it a go-to technique in your coloring arsenal. This is a very important foundation technique that other coloring techniques will build upon.
In this tutorial, I used the following Copic colors:
- Y13, Y15, BG02, and BG05
X-Press IT Blending Card Paper Bright White
Lawn Fawn Clear Stamp – Love You Tons
Lawn Fawn Die Cuts – Love You Tons
Memento Full Size Dye Ink Pad – Tuxedo Black
Echo Park Paper Pad – That’s My Boy 6 x 6
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Summer 2012 – Ocean, Raspberry & Lawn
Crafter’s Companion Double Sided Adhesive Extra Strong Permanent Tape Runner
I hope that you enjoyed today’s lesson. I’ve also got two bonus videos to go along with today’s project.
