A Card and A Video


Today I want to show you a video I made for Copic Marker Europe showing how I colour images with sepia tones.

When I colour sepia tones I like to use the following Markers:

Faces – E50, E51, E53
Hair – E50, E31, E55
Clothes – E40, E41, E43, E44

Of course, it is also fun to experiment with other E numbered markers to find the shades that you like.  This selection is just my favourite.

 Here's the card I made using this image: 

And a close-up of the image itself:

I'm entering this card into the following challenges: 

Totally Tilda - Christmas with No Reds, No Greens and No Blues
Deep Ocean - Vintage
