Snowy Bears and Ice

Hi everyone! It's MEG here today with a tip and a fiasco to share with you....

My tip is on coloring ice when you are doing some no-line coloring. My fiasco is my CAS design, which I shall explain below.

First...for my fiasco. I don't know if you've ever had a plan with how your design should turn out, only to find yourself doing something completely different?!

I am not usually a CAS-girl, as y'all know. But for this design, the Snowy Bears clear stamps are seriously so perfect and detailed on their own, there isn't much you need to do to create a beautiful project other than adding a sentiment and some background paper.

Well...I forgot that I wasn't going to cut my bear out, and I used my paper as a "tester" for my Copic markers! I was so disappointed in myself when I realized what I had done.

I think I can salvage this sheet, but it's taking A. LOT. of work! So for now, I wanted to share my coloring and a TIP!

If you're trying no-line coloring, things like snow and ice can be tough to color up. My trick is to not use too many colors. Keep it simple. For the ice in this design (which I wanted to have a green tint), I just used BG23 and BG11 (Copic colors).

Let me know how you fare with the ice if you try this tip! And if you've got a big Copic mess on your hands, try using the colorless blender to get the ink to "pool" onto the backside of the cardstock rather than the front!

See y'all next time!
