I am exhausted, but the good kind of exhausted. The kind of exhausted that has my shoulders hurting and still picking glue out from under my fingernails. I am sure you can relate. I have not touched a copic since last October. It took me a few minutes for the ol' skills to kick back in but oh what fun when the right brain kicked in!! When that happens I can lose huge chunks of time just lost in the process. It is so relaxing to just tune out all the wifey, mom and grandma stuff and only concentrate on the next brush stroke.
So on to what occupied my copic craze today. Quite awhile ago I had drawn this princess. I am going to make her available on my freebie page. When I first started with copics I wanted a stamp NOW that I could practice hair, skin and pleats on.
This is not a card but a 9x12 page. I printed my digi on cardstock ( I use Neenah) and then colored and cut her out to add to the background using gel medium. I am trying to incorporate my copics into some mixed media fun.
I didn't write down my colors of the copics I used but her dress was BG's. You can see my colors choices for hair and skin here. On the background I used acrylic paints, Pitt Pens by Faber Castell, tissue paper (with the polka dots), micro beads, stamping with white acrylic paint and white gel pen. I made the flower by cutting multiple circles of tulle and heating the edges with my heat tool. It's secured in the center with staples and a pearl glued on top.
Now as promised here is the freebie:
If you ink her up I would love to see!! Shoot, it's time to return to mommy land.. lol!
