Freesias with bright colours

by Anna Kossakovskaya

Hello, it's Marika here. Today I'm featuring Fresh Freesia set with bright and fresh colours. I used a couple of masking techniques to create this bouquet of flowers. I used copic markers with no-line colouring technique to colour freesias with layers. Sentiments are a mix from Baby Zoo and Painted Poppy set. Here is my simple card for today:

Copic colours used: Y13 – Y15 – YG11 – YG03 and YG67.

I made video tutorial and this time I tried to explain my colouring methods more and I also shared some thoughts what I've noticed while experimenting with colouring with copics. Hopefully you find them helpful. You can watch it here or in HD in YouTube.

Thank you for stopping by today. I love to read your comments and I try to reply to everyone. Your kind encouragement and support makes my day every time. Thank you so much.

Marika

Wow Marika you’re so talented in your light strokes here! No blending as normal but precise flicking of color depth proved to bring this flower to life! Lovely! Thank you for sharing masking tips, they always baffle me, you can retpeat that forever!

You’re very welcome, Patti! Thank you so much for your kind comment. When I started crafting, I was in total loss when masking. And there’s a few attempts made lately too that I still haven’t gotten it right. Lol!
