I Want A Boy With Brains
Now, with this awesome design team spot and coloring these awesome images, I thought I would take this opportunity to share my take on Copic saturation with this Tickled Pink line. Since these images contain some great surface coloring area, I thought these would be perfect to show that you really can deposit a good amount of color WITHOUT wasting your ink with unreal Copic saturation. Heavy saturation is when the alcohol ink of the Copic marker fills up the paper fiber and bleeds through the back (sometimes making the back look like the front!). The "bleed" is actually the magic of Copic markers, but in my opinion, too much bleed equals wasted product. This is something I teach EXTENSIVELY in my Copic Coloring Palooza, but I wanted to share a bit about it on my blog too. So instead of me babbling on about it, let me show you!
), and with a dark blue, I just KNEW I was going to have some saturation. A little bit of saturation can't be helped sometimes, but I ALWAYS strive for the back of my paper to be CLEAN. As you can tell by the finished card at the top, plenty of color deposited on my project. I achieved the desired blend of color I was after and I didn't waste a ton of ink trying to saturate my paper.
Ok folks! That does it for me with the first sneak peek of the new Tickled Pink line that will release on August 15th. Click HERE to check out what the Pink Ladies turned out! Be sure to stay tuned for my second sneak peek in a couple of days and more on Copic saturation as I'm posting pics of the backs of ALL the colored images I complete with this new line!
