Faux Copic Watercolor

August 10, 2016

Hi everyone! In today’s video I will show you a simple and controlled technique to leave your watercolors on the shelf and pull out the Copic markers to create a faux watercolor butterfly card.

The color blocking watercolor technique is easy to achieve with the Colorless Blender marker. The maker really gives the markers a watercolor look without having to worry about the mess and time water coloring takes.

Start off by adding your lighter color down first creating interest, texture, and shapes. Try pouncing your marker lightly in a circular motion to create lots of texture and interest. Then, layer the second darker color on top leaving a border of lighter color around it. Next, take your colorless blender and blend and soften the dark edges to make it look like watercolor.

To make the background interesting, add some grays using the same watercolor coloring technique. Finally, add your sentiment from the Bejeweled stamp set and onto a card base it goes!

Enjoy the video!
