I’m sharing this pretty little card using the brand new Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit for August 2019. Lots of Copic coloring going on and I’ll share my techniques on how I color skin & hair.

I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how this card was made. You can watch it below or on YouTube.
I’ve been coloring with Copic markers for easily 5+ years. I can’t remember the first time I purchased a marker. But once I started using them, I never looked back. They really are the top of the line for markers. I’ve tried others, but really, nothing compares. If you are serious about using markers as a coloring medium, I highly suggest using Copics and Copics only. Yes, they are expensive. But if you slowly build up your collection, I know in the end you’ll be much happier than trying to color with other products. I only use 3 colors per family. So I really only use about 30 markers, over and over again.
Please watch my video above. It goes through my entire process of coloring this girl and the color combos I use. I am not an expert. I’ve never taken a class or been Copic Certified. This is just the technique I’ve developed over the years of practice and watching Youtube videos. It’s not perfect, it’s just mine. I hope it inspires you and helps you develop yours as well.
I love this brand new sentiment kit as well. There was a request for a sentiment kit that focused on those who struggle with substance recovery and suicide prevention. Gosh, my heart just breaks to think of how many tackle life with these added struggles. I have nothing but empathy and love to share. I’m always afraid I’ll not find the words worthy of such emotions and turmoil. How can I find the perfect words for such a struggle? I can’t really. But I can share the feelings I want to express and just HOPE they help someone through their journey. So I hope you love them too and that they help someone you love.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you are inspired by today’s project. If you create something, I’d love to see. Join us in the Unity Show & Tell Facebook group to share your card and tag me.
