A little of this and a little of that.

More BaZooples

Once again the following cards are made using BaZooples, which are now available at Inky Antics. Since these cards will be used for an Inky Antic display the designer paper and cardstock was all coordinated to be displayed together. I used Bazzill cardstock and the designer paper is from BasicGrey’s Origins collection.

For each card I colored the image using Copic’s, my first time coloring images with Copics!

Let me explain… In December I was at my local art supply store (Meininger) and they happened to be having a sale on Copic Sketch Markers, I decided to purchase some just to see if I liked them. I brought them home did some scribbling on cardstock, didn’t like them. About three weeks later and after watching numerous YouTube tutorials I gave them another try, this time blending… still wasn’t happy with my results. I made the decision to sell them, my stamping neighbor had ladies lined up ready to purchase what I had.

Two days before selling the Copic’s, Jackie from Inky sent me the BaZoople images and I just knew they would be perfect for coloring with Copics. I went out and purchased more and knew I had to learn fast how to blend; it was back to YouTube for me. I think my images came out pretty okay for being my first time actually coloring an image, I’m sure with more practice I can eventually get the hang of proper blending. That’s my Copic story.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend ~ Jovi

  1. Copic coloring looks great for just learning them!

  2. These are more than "pretty okay!" My first creations were a mess! It really is all about the paper with copics! Wonderfully fun cards today!

  3. Fabulous! Your coloring is beautiful. At the Copic Certification class I took a year ago, the instructor suggested purchasing N6 and N7 - good for shading and makes dark colors darker. I'm just now beginning to use them. Blending them really does add dimension. Practice, practice, practice. :0) I love the "round" hippo card.

  4. These are so cute! You did a fabulous job with the Copics. Practice, practice, practice is the way to go with the copics for sure. Sit down and color, color, color. The more you do the better the shading gets. I have not done any coloring in quite sometime. Think it might be time for some coloring again soon. :0)

  5. Oh my goodness,they're fabulous!Great coloring!
    Beautiful cards!

  6. Awwwww, these are SUCH adorable cards!!

  7. WOW!! What a really sweet set of animal image!! LOVE each and every one of them!! Your coloring is gorgeous too!! TFS!! HUGS

  8. Very, very cute. You did a wonderful job with the Copics. Like you I didn't like my Copics at first. Tell me, do you start with the light or the dark? Videos have me pulled in two directions. I'm watching lots of videos now too.
