I love trying out different mediums on different papers – and today it’s dark, rich, colored papers! I layered pencil, then Copic marker, than more pencil.
I don’t have brand names for these papers; a few years back I cut up a bunch of papers into card front size and I’m still working through that stack, so I have no idea what it is – but you don’t want anything with a gloss or sheen to it. Heavier papers tend to work better too. Try out colors on scraps so you know what to expect!

The colors used for the two cards….the G24 was the last color added to the tulip greens.
Hydrangeas in Bloom is a pretty little stamp! The lines are quite delicate and thin, which is what inspired this card design; it was so thin I thought I could get color variance mixing it with white pen.
Tulips, by Waffle Flower, is a Mother’s Day set but can definitely be used year round – there are other sentiments for the women in your life!

I like the look of the finished flowers. Great video showing the coloring. This is something I’d like to try.
Wow! These looked like much more work than the Copic flicks that you did on them! Gorgeous! Now if I could just master those amazing flicks you do…
These are just so pretty SAndy
These turned out gorgeous Sandy! Love them! 🙂
Well, you do keep me wanting to learn new things. And you seem to be able come up with new things all the time!
So Beautiful and realistic. You are so talented. I love watching your coloring magic.
These are just stunning. Love the dramatic look of the dark cardstock.
These are beautiful
Every day I feel like I ate dessert when I come visit your latest upload. Thank you for the yummies, Sandy! These are outrageously gorgeous but simple!
Beautiful! I thought Copics could be used only under (not over) colored pencils as the wax in the pencils were harmful to the Copic tips?
Anyone else hear that?
This is an interesting combination. The colours really pop. Thanks for the tip!
This is an interesting technique – I wouldn’t have thought Copics would work over white pencil. Thank you for giving us something else to think about, than all the dreary news these days.
