Did you see the video that Kathy did on the last day of Kick Start? (If you haven't taken the class, run, don't walk and register -- you can take it any time and it is SO worth it) Kathy shows us her coloring creative process and it felt like I was sitting right next to her. OK, I WISH I was sitting right next to my dear friend. She'll make you want to color NOW.
So I did... I bought a digital image for this vintage image. I must admit that I prefer the feel of a stamp in my hand but for an image I'll probably only use once? I occasionally buy a digital one.
I was inspired by Kathy's coloring (of course) and realized I NEVER blend Copics from different families together. So on this card I did that on the clothes of the kids. I liked her suggestion of beginning the blending outside the image. It really did work better. And using that white pen for dots. Tried that here. I also cut out the whole image which with something this intricate I would not normally do but thought I'd try it like Kathy does.
I had so much fun making this.
Of course I used LOTS of Copic markers: (too many for one handful! :-)
