Copics for Cardmakers Class - Day 2

Today was all about blending in creative ways.  For me laying some ink on an acrylic block and then picking it up with the lighter marker worked better.  I really pushed myself and made a concerted effort to use colors I didn't think would work together.  I definitely created some crazy birds that way!!  But...I learned a lot about how to get some really unique looks.  The one bird where I used green and orange on his chest (YG06 and YR68) would work really great on a monster.  I love the way the color mottled down.  I also really liked the pink butterfly.  I think that would be a wonderful look on a skirt.  I was also really surprised at the effect I got with layering the grays - I'll probably use that quite a bit.

Here's my practice sheet - wowzers what a mess but there's a lot of learning there!!
