How many of you automatically reach for that Tuxedo Black Memento when stamping, I know I always have.
Well, next time, grab Angel Pink and see how different your finished image can look.....
This image was coloured purely with Copics, although Zoe suggests adding highlights/low lights with pencil to add definition.
It gives a much softer, pastel like quality to your work as the stamp lines don't show - it's just your colouring that is visible.
This technique does come with a "warning" - it isn't easy and is much more time consuming than the traditional method. I had quite a pile of bloopers around my feet by the time I'd finished, but it is such a cool look it is well worth the effort.
Tip: It's what I call my "sanity saver" - get your faithful Tuxedo Black and stamp the image on some scrap paper, then you'll have a nice clear image to follow when the lines disappear under the Copic ink.
What do you think?
