Watercolor with Copics

I stumbled across a new technique, although I'm guessing someone somewhere figured it out before I did.  However, I've never seen this done before so I'm claiming it as my own.  It's very, very difficult...NOT!  Let me show you the card and then I'll explain.



I colored with Copics on the front side then turned my hearts over.  I was getting ready to stick them down when I suddenly thought, "I like this side better."  See, told you it was terribly difficult!

I'm entering this in the CAS-ual Fridays, Curtain Call, and Runway Inspired challenges.

Kinda fun, huh?

Until next time,
Becca

  1. LOL, glad you got your card entered on time! I really like this - much better than mine! I love how the back side of your colored hearts are so pretty! My backsides are never pretty LOL!

  2. Oh, Becca - I am LOVING your technique. Before I read how you created the effect, I thought that perhaps you had water coloured them as that's what it looks like. Simply gorgeous. I don't have copics but I do have spectrum noir pens and so I am just going to HAVE to give this a shot!! Thank you for sharing it xx

  10. oh my gosh Becca, you are so talented. The only thing I ever seem to use the back of my Copic colorings for is to bleed out some color that has crossed over the lines. LOL
    I think both sides are lovely, but filpping them over sure makes for a special and lovely look.

  11. Beautiful!!! I probably don't color the fronts as nicely as you have, the back sides are definitely not this cool! Still, I'll keep trying, the look is "dreamy"!

  13. That is totally genius and yes, I love the effect on the back so much more than the defined images on the front! I will totally have to try this out! Thanks for strutting your stuff with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!
