Copics for Cardmakers Class - Day 11

Today's class was so very timely!  I had been coloring up this cute image from Karla Dornacher (unfortunately it was a limited time freebie and isn't available anymore but she has lots of other fun coloring pages so go check her out!) and I had all sorts of oopsies on it and figured I'd just have to print another and start over.  But...after watching the videos today I decided to try cleaning it up with the tips in class.  It turned out great!  You really can't see the Gelly Roll white pen after it dries - it even covers red!!

I further prettied it up with some Wink of Stella brush glitter and ball point pens along with my Gelly Roll white pen.

The card is a little larger than your standard A2 since I wanted to add a border.  I created the mat by coloring some white card stock with Copic RV55 to match the hearts in the image.  I also didn't have enough of the blues I wanted to use on the birds so I used the gray technique from earlier in class.  I also created the polka dot effect under the sentiment with another technique we learned - using the colorless blender.
Here are the Copic colors I used:
