Tilda card

Here is my May Mingle card for Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. I believe the theme was April Showers bring May flowers, so you could go both ways with the card, flowers or showers. I've not colored this Tilda before so used her for the first time. I think I need more Copics to blend the colors a bit more, Plus I need to take a class. I finally broke down and purchased the copic blender marker, but every time I use it I have to trash the image--ugh! I'm Copic-challenged!

Hi Pat! Your card is really cute! I like that image! To try and help you a little bit with the Copics, the color blender really isn't used to "blend" colors. It's more of a color remover. That's probably why you don't like your results when you use it. When you blend, blend with the lighter color you're using instead of the blender pen. I know, cause I did the exact same thing when I first sarted. Hope this helps you!

Your card is adorable! I really like your colors and Tilda is just way too cute!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi Pat,

Love your take of the May challenge. I was going to tell you about the Copic Blender, but see Sharon has done so already! If you don't have a lot of colours that match - remember you can use one or two colours and use them more than once for a darker shade.

Hugs, Candy

Hi, Love the composition of your card. Sharon and Candy are correct..I did the exact thing in the beginning too and HATED the copics...go to Ilikemarkers blog or Suzanne Deans blog and there are lots of tutorials on how to use copics ..thats where I learned the most...Good luck..will be looking forward to seeing more of your work.
