Marker Mondays - September Part II

All supplies available from A Muse Studio

 For September we are using the following three Copic colors and the clear blender pen
  •  R32 - Peach
  • YG21 - Anise
  • B24 - Sky Blue
  •  0 - Blender Pen
This card is a simple card but it is so cute!  I cut my card base out of the Clouds paper and then used my Square Nestabilities to make a die cut in the front of the card.  The stamping is done on the inside of the card with the Black Memento ink.  Bicycles are so popular right now and I love the cute sentiment we have for this one: "Keep calm. Ride on."

Remember we are only using three colors here so I started by coloring the dark parts of the bike first with the Sky Blue.  Then I added the light parts using Anise.  Can you see how I feathered that into the blue parts to blend it?  It's the little touches that add so much to your image here. The basket is colored using Anise and Peach.  I blended them a tiny bit on part of the basket to make a third color to add some interest to the woven texture.

This image is so cute and tiny there's not a lot of room for blending so we are done!  If you want to add a bit of shadow under the wheels you can use your blender pen and the Sky Blue to add a wee bit of color there to help ground the image.  Hopefully you stamped plenty of extra images in your workbook so you can experiment!
