A Good Comparison

Ok you guys... its time for the truth.  I'm gonna bare my soul here!  I was TERRIFIED that I would not be able to color once I got the new Spectrum Noir markers.  For years I've been told how well I color using the Copic brush nib alcohol ink markers and for years I've believed it was because of the tool.  NOW I plunge into the REAL world of coloring.... new markers and different nibs.  Can I do it?  Will the new tool measure up?

Okie dokie, see for yourself!!!  Above is a hair and face chart that I practiced on yesterday (thank you for the heads Lori Barnett).  I started the first head in the top left corner using my Copic brush nib markers.  Then I completed the rest of the heads using Spectrum Noir markers in various color combinations to see if there was a noticeable difference.  Oh, these are pretty darn close, wouldn't you say????  This practice sheet is literally the third time I've colored with these markers (I'll post my second project tomorrow).  I was BEYOND thrilled with the outcome!!!  I can't wait to play some more.  And for those of you in the market for alcohol ink markers, as I said in my last post, Spectrum Noir markers will not break your bank and I find the coloring system to be SOOOOOO easy!!!  And here are some color combinations to get you started.  LOL!

In the coming weeks, I will post another comparison much like the one I did when I went from Stampin Up markers to Copic markers.  Although, this time I'm comparing apples to apples because Copic markers and Spectrum Noir markers are both alcohol ink markers.  The Spectrum Noir's are just much less expensive!!!  Stay tuned!!!
