Everyone be ready for a shocker - I did some colouring but not with Copics! I dug out my Prismacolor pencils and had a play with those instead - what's that I hear? shock, horror, rounds of 'are you feeling well, Sarah?'!
Yes, yes, now we have that jesting done with, I used to colour probably 75% Copics and 25% Prismacolors in the old days, more using the pencils to add definition on top of Copics. I haven't used only pencils for many years and so this was very much a fun experiment and a learning curve / memory test!
I don't think the end result was too shabby, but my goodness I could not get a good picture of my pencil work. The poor girl looks like she's got a bad case of sun-burn! One of those rare occasions when the original card looks way better than anything I can get in the picture. No amount of photo editing or different light (and I did wait for later in the day and a different room to take more pictures) would fix it - so here you go I'm being brave here! :-)
and a close up of the image:
I also doubt that the ordinary white card I use when making my own card blanks was the best medium to colour on. However, I can't remember what I used to use and the card was made for a CAS One Layer challenge - so I worked with what I had.
If, no when, I do this again, I will investigate properly the better card to use and make a better job of it!
Also, in other news, pleased to report TTT is happily back at school - only a bit of a lingering cough left from the cold - and the Hubby is also on the mend. It seems I was lucky and didn't catch their cold - fingers crossed anyways!!
