Hi Copic Lovers! Linda here! As much as I hate to I will admit my eyes don't work as well as they did when I was younger. At 61 I need glasses to see objects close and far away. Not only are my eyes getting older, along with the rest of me, but my hands aren't as steady as they once were. When you are a serious color-er like me good eyes and steady hands are important.
Recently, I noticed that staying inside the lines of a small area was not as easy as it once was. I also noticed that outlining the outside of an image to create a background was more difficult. I decided to experiment with the nibs of my Copic markers to see if I could achieve better control. Here is what I did and the results.
First, I removed the broad nib from my sketch marker. I seldom use that nib.
Here is my finished card using the iCopic Challenge Colors....coral, pink, and gold.
