Tuesday Tips: What to Do In Desperate Times!

Hello everyone!   Marie here to share with you on Tips and Tricks Tuesday at iCopic !

 I have just spent a wonderful week at the beach near Southern California.  I had a wonderful  time and the weather was gorgeous!  However - that leads me to the little "tip and trick" I am going to share with you today.   I was so proud of myself for packing lightly.  You now what I mean!   Those craft bags we take on vacation can really add up to be more than our clothing! OK, let's be honest- more than clothing for the whole family!   I was in the process of coloring my image and my violet Copics I needed for my mid-tone and highlight ran out of ink.  You got it.... They were dry.  My card was due (like yesterday)! No - there were not any Copic stores near.  iCopic was too far and Fed Ex wouldn't cooperate!

Tip:  Take your colorless blender and touch the tip of your darker tone and blend outward.  Use a flicking motion with the wrist and blend toward the highlight.   Keep the process going and you will have a mid-tone and highlight!  

Skin E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000
