Yummy Peaches

Posted by: Jan Marie | September 30th, 2010

Last week we had Beate John’s tutorial using Copics and colored pencils. Today I am posting a card using that method. The depth and colors that can be achieved is unbelievable expansive. The card is simple and straightforward. Here is the card.  Beate used the Peaches and Cherries and I used the same.

Peaches for Dee a

I used Flourishes Classic White paper, stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink  and colored the images using a variety of yellows ,oranges and greens to achieve this look in both Copics and colored pencils.  Smoothing with the Copic clear blender pens smooths everything out very nicely.  I also used my colorless blender pencil over the pencils for the blended look.  I loved the layering and the depth that I could achieve using these mixed media. 

I simply used designer papers and Nestabilities ovals scallops for cutting the shapes, then punched with SU notched notebook punch. It seemed like a good idea at the time.   A few simple embellishments and ribbon were the finishing touches.  The sentiment comes from the Flourishes set Thinking of You.

I hope you will refer back to our tutorial section and re-look at Beate’s amazing tutorial and then give it a try.  Then I hope you will post your cards on our Splitcoast gallery for us all to see.

Ciao for now,

Jan Marie
