Hello my four lovely friends. I went out and bought some Copic markers. I figured since I'm making digital stamps I should know a little about these markers that everybody uses for paper crafts. This is what I learned. They're on the expensive side, I only bought four, two pinkies and two bluesies, but I think I needed at least one more of each color to make smoother transitions in the colors. I also think I should pick up a colorless blender. I practiced on paper first and then made a little digital stamp to color in.
I need some more practice, I can't even color in the lines, reasons I need design team members!
When I bought my Copics I felt like I was buying some sorta illegal substance cuz I asked one of the sales people and they told me I had to go ask in framing. I was like okay, so I went to the framing department. After waiting a couple minutes a woman came to the counter and I asked her where I could find these markers. She said, "Hold on a sec," and disappeared. She then came back with the racks of markers. I guess they are stolen quite often, so they are kept in hiding! She supervised as I choose my colors. She then told me to meet her up front, where I will receive the markers as I pay. It was an interesting journey to buy some markers!
I added a new digi stamp to my Etsy store also (click in my sidebar to find it in my shop).
Here's the low down, as you can see from my attempt above
I'm not that great at the crafty end of digital stamp usage, I'm much better at drawing them! So I need some people to be on the Melissa T. Liban Illustrations' Cute Crafty Land Design Team, boy that's a mouthful, we'll need to shorten that.
If you're interested you'll need a blog, you'll need to be able to e-mail me your creations and you'll need to make crafty things outta my digital stamps/clipart/ and or digital scrapbooking paper. I'll send ya a badge for your blog and free cute clipart/digital stamps and scrapbooking paper. I'm talking to a few people, but I'm looking for a few more. Leave a comment or click on the contact me in the sidebar if your interested or would like more info.
Bye for now!
