If you are like me and love this girl from the "punny farm" set then I think you will get a kick out of this card. She is supposed to be a farm girl, but with these buckets she could be building sand castles, or in this case clammin'. I love it when sets are versatile like this! I combined the "punny farm" set with the "By the Seashore" sets from My Favorite Things. I used today's "try a new technique" challenge to fold my dahlia flower. Have you noticed how well the Amy Butler paper matches the style of the MFT stamps? Fresh, fun, urban and modern.....love it!
I colored this image with copics and airbrushed the sky. I used the technique for coloring that I show in my video, using a transparency. The ink does dry very fast on the transparency but if you rub it with your light marker it will still lift off to transfer color YKWIM?
A couple questions were asked:
Do copics color well on transparencies?
I have not had luck with this, because the alcohol makes the ink dry lightning fast there is no time to blend, hence a lot of streaking.
Have you had to refill your markers yet?
I am placing my first order for refills today, there are a few colors that I use for sky and ground cover that could use refreshing. Also the skin color that I use a lot.
I am not having to replace any nibs at this point, they are of fabulous quality and I am impressed with their durability. You all know how much coloring I have done with these markers!
Have a happy stamping day! (No puppies yet here....waiting patiently)
