No Copics?


I really, really love the look that the Copic Markers give a project, but I just can't bring myself to buy them. I decided that I would re-visit the water color pencils and crayons. I tend to use the water brush or the colored pencils more often, because of the control. But for blending you can't beat water colors. For this card I used the watercolor crayons and paint brushes. The key to water color is to control the amount of water.
