I created two cards using Suzanne Dean's technique for coloring white images with Copic Markers. Color Me Creative Classroom Class 2/Video 6 "Coloring White"

My second card was created from a stamp called "Willow with Lantern". I sketched the veil freehand and colored with B000 and B00 and then used stickles.

Tip: You can add interest to your images by drawing details freehand with Copic Multiliners. You can sketch with a pencil and then use your Copic Multiliner. Erase your pencil marks and you are ready to color.

Thank you for stopping by. Please come back soon!
