Mad For Markers Scrapping Saturday

Here is my post, which is up over at the Mad for Markers blog….

So here I am again for another Saturday Scrapping and today I have a cute layout to share with you, with some adorable Hero Arts Monster Fun Stamps teamed up with my Copic Markers (of course), with some Echo Park Little Boy Collection thrown in (which is now available at Scraploot, along with Springtime and For The Record Collections). Today I am going to share a tip with you for matching patterned papers to your Copics. To do this I have a small (A5) sized Copic Hand Colour Chart, which I place underneath my pattern paper to one edge and expose the colour family I am trying to match, e.g. Yellows (Y) I slide my hand colour chart along until I find the group of markers that best reflect the yellow that is in my patterned paper. I do this for each of the colours that I am wanting to use in my colouring that I want to link directly to my patterned papers.

Here is my share for today, along with a close up of the colouring

My post today doesn’t show any Crazy hair colouring…. however the colours I’ve used in my colouring sure could be used to colour some Crazy hair… so pop on over to our Challenge Blog and get in on the action.

Copics Used
