Happy New Baby!

My pastor recently became a grandpa for the first time so I made this card for him. While I was coloring the super cute image (by TAC) it occured to me that I don't color correctly with my copics. What I mean is, according to Marianne Walker and Suzanne Dean, you are supposed to color with the flat side of the brush tip of the marker, not directly with the tip. (COPIC TIP) I never really thought about it until now...but I have not been doing that. Apparently you can actually ruin the marker tip and eventually bend or damage the nib if you color directly with the pointed tip all the time. So I tried to color with the flat side of the nib as best I could with out going outside the lines, I mean obviously you need to use the tip to get inside the really small spots. This is definitely something I will have to keep practicing with and will change my coloring technique dramatically.
I really like this sentiment from The Angel Company. I think it fit perfectly for this card.

  1. I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
