Make It Colourful is coloring skies!

This week at Make It Colourful we're coloring skies! There are SO many different techniques to achieve this and be sure to stop by the Make It Colourful blog for a fabulous video tutorial by our very own Annika who shows you how to make a sky using copic makers! For the sky on my card, I used prisma colored pencils with some odorless blender. I also used penciles for the grass. I'm getting hooked on mixing the two coloring mediums and they really do get along! I'll forever remain true to my Copics though.

Love the coloring of that tree and the yellow paper is to die for! Fabulous card - the geeky couple is so cute and the way you colored them is so much fun. Great mixing the colors, you coloring is fantastic! Is that tag from a label maker? Such a fun accent. ;D Bam Bam
