full of empty promises

>> Friday, April 10, 2009

well sheesh... i've been full of empty promises huh? I said i had been coloring so i'd have a lot of cards turned out soon. Yep... no cards. bad me! Actually, i do have 2 cards. And i will post them here in the next few days that wont have much craft time.

I've actually had a few makeup things this week along with the recent April release from Paper Makeup Stamps and i had a coloring class yesterday plus one tomorrow. Whew. tiring week. :)

Ok, so i dont actually have a card to post right this moment, but while my mother-in-law was in town, we decided to play with colored pencils and baby oil. I've really only tried this technique 2 other times. One was a bit back and in my opinion, a bit disasterous. The other turned out really cute at my friend Rachel's stamp camp, but my charming 3 year old took scissors to my colored image before i ever got it on a card. I was actually pleased the with result (much more so than the first time) but it took me about 3 times as long to color than it does with my copics. maybe it's just because of what i'm used to.

Then i used the same image yesterday when i was coloring with copics (and was playing with light reflection to use as an example in my color class). I like the copic version better but i'm very interested to hear everyone else's opinions! :)

THe colored pencil version is on the left and the copic version is on the right. it would have been a better side by side if i had used the same colors, but oh well. :)

My goal is to actually get these put on a card! But Lord knows i have countless colored image sitting all over the place that never make it to cards! haha.

I think they both look nice and you wouldn't know any different if you didn't see them together. I really think it's what you are use to as I love my pencils and odorless mineral spirits.
HOpe you get a chance to make some cards!!

I think they are both great. I like the "colors" of the one in Copics better and I like how you can get super highlights with Copics. If it were not for the super highlight I don't think anyone would know the difference. I don't have Copics so I use pencils and goo gone and love the technique. I would love to try Copics though.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend, my dear.

They both do look really great and love the coloring on both. But I do see the highlights a lot better with the copics, I gotta learn how to do that.
