Magical Monday: Color outside the lines (literally)

Big thanks to Clearly Besotted for sending this cute set out to me…and for inspiring this video with a sentiment included in it!

Color outside the lines (literally!)

The sentiment in this cute little set inspired the idea for this card – and the idea that I hadn’t done any Copic “faux watercolor” in ages! You could do this kind of a technique with a lot of mediums – use some masking fluid and watercolor or Brusho, for instance. But I wanted to play with color and my Copics. (There are some other videos linked at the end of the video if you want a bit of explanation rather than just toe-tappin’ music.) Enjoy the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

What fun to color the background – and just a little tiny bit of shadows on the images!
