I’ve shared a number of Copic watercolor techniques before…but not Copic PLUS watercolor! So why not?
Dear Copic/watercolor: meet and be friends!
I was at a craft retreat the weekend before last, and Dawn from WPlus9 was there and working on samples for her release today. When she wasn’t looking I snuck the “A New Day” set and stamped a few on some watercolor paper so I could play too! And I’ll be ordering this set this morning – it’s soooooo pretty!
Watch the video below to see how I created the cool Copic airbrush background (read THIS post if you want to know more about the system and what you need to get started) – I can’t believe how beautiful that texture came out! You can also click HERE to watch it in HD on YouTube.
So now you know I finally did it…Copic and watercolor on the same piece! 🙂 And without trying to make one medium look like the other! I’m definitely going to be exploiting the fact that my airbrush looks amazing on this fancy shmancy paper, too.
This is such a sweet little set, and will be perfect to make Copic/watercolor cards for some friends who’ve been going through rough times lately. It seems like these seasons come all at once – everyone’s got stuff, know what I mean? So the promise of a new day, a fresh tomorrow…that’s something that’ll work for everyone. Off to shop for this set as soon as they’re live! 🙂 OH and the new sprays from Wplus9 will just happen to hop into my cart too – wayyyyyyy too cool for school!
Not sure if I have other ways to make copic/watercolor on one card with both mediums, but you know I’ll be trying!
