What an interesting experience this was. I decided to have a go in Kathy's Daily Marker Pop Up Challenge. I just used a thick piece of printer paper as I didn't know if it would work and didn't want to waste copic cardstock.
I really wasn't comfortable with this idea. I like to use stamps where someone else has done the design and I get to colour and use. But there is a first time for everything and I have to say I have totally enjoyed the end result.
There were a couple of false starts where I drew lines then didn't like what I saw, threw it aside and went to do something else but had to push myself and basically say 'come on Aileen, do it'.
So I drew all the lines with a very thin Copic Multiliner 0.05. There were some sections where the lines were nearly invisible but I left as was. Then I just randomly picked out colours, light and bright cause thats me.
I tried to pre decide where colours should go and should be consistent then found I just wanted to colour and enjoy it so I did. Went in and recoloured a couple of time so probably wastes a bit of ink but wasn't too fussed.
Once I was happy with the colour fill, I went in with the Sharpie Fine Point Black. couple of wobbles there that I think I caught okay. Probably could have done more with some wide bands of colour but was happy with what I was seeing.
Then I added the little itty bitty lines (eyelashes) on one side only of each line.
With the close up you can see some of those wobbles.
I really liked stand decided to make a card after all.
Cut out the Simon Says 'Hello', saved the little bits. Glued the coloured piece to a white card base and added in the little bits so Hello was clear on the card.
Wonky photo here but you can see side on.
Was going to multi layer the hello and put back into place but I decided I liked the card with the negative only. Will use this Hello on another card. Doesn't that look brilliant, looks like I have used pre patterned paper.
