Another guy birthday
Here is a link for you. http://www.copicmarker.com/resources You will find just about everything you ever wanted to know about copics on this page. You can download a blank color chart and color it in with your copics on the paper you use. That is how you really match colors. Take your dp and lay it next to the chart you have colored. Now you just might be able to find what you want to use! If you use different papers, be sure to mark on your chart which paper you are using for that chart. If you take your time with the color wheel, you will begin to understand how the copics are numbered and why. You will also see the differences when you color your chart. There is lots of info on that link. Hope you enjoy it. It's all from Copic.
If you are into watercoloring with distress inks, check out youtube.com. Do a search for distress inks and then try adding watercoloring to the mix. Hero Arts has a few really good ones. Try Tim Holtz and Jennifer McGuire. The main thing in waterrcoloring is to use just a tiny bit of color and add lots of water. That distress is very very concentrated!! If you try it out on scraps first you will like what you are doing lots better! Also be sure to use watercolor paper either hot or cold press. Regular paper just doesn't hold the water well. Hope this all helps you give things a try! There is so much out there to try!!!! I am working on another scrapbook page. Thought I might just take some photos of the ones I have done lately. I will be covering the photos though as I really don't want to be on the internet photowise!! I don't scrapbook very often as I find it takes me forever until I actually glue things down! Hugs to you all, Barb F
