Mystery Monday @ Club Anya & Friends!

Hi everyone,

I'm hosting Mystery Monday this week at CA&F and let me tell ya I had such a blast browsing thru the galleries. It was an ubelievably hard choice! TGF has some of the most talented fans out there! I finally came across a card by Marit Meijer that just had my jaw drop! I loved everything about it from the coloring to the layers. So pretty so I knew I wanted to try CASEing it. I hope you will too!!

I'm trying to grow myself with my coloring - I'm still reeling from all the new ideas and tips I got from the Copic Certification class! So on Anya's cute little beanie, I tried to give it some texture with the Coloress Blender - so I dipped a piece of my jute ribbon in some of it and patted it across her hat. I still need to pracitce at it some more. I'm not entirely happy with it! I think maybe I used too much or something b/c it started bleeding and I ended up having to color a new Anya and then cut the hat out. Also, on her scarf since it's a smaller area than her hat and I still wanted to give it some depth I just touched the tip of my R20 to my R25 blending inward by flicking my brush tip. I love that it really takes less time, gives the same effect as blending with two different markers by using just one on smaller areas. This is just one of the great tips I left with on Saturday!!! I will probably be using new techniques all the time now with my Copics and I will definately be sharing them here with you on my blog!
