VIDEO: Snowy Copic Background + a GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I have a video for you featuring the newly released Merriest Wishes stamp set.

In the video, I go over the color combinations I used and how I colored this sweet little scene. I am not a Copic expert, but I share a few of my tips and tricks for achieving some depth and easy effects, including how to create that snowy background. I just love how it resembles watercolor, but is actually achieved using a Copic marker and some Colorless Blender Solution.

Watch above or in HD at YouTube
