I'm not using copic markers for 2 days !!!

I know you probably think that I am crazy, that is still up for debate...however, I have decided that I have been ignoring all of the other coloring techniques that I used to love to do.  My first project  using this darling Sassy Cheryl's  April Showers image, was created with the coloring technique of watercoloring with SU watercolor crayons and an aquapainter brush:
Isn't this the funniest Sassy Cheryl image? 
I used to use my SU watercolor crayons all the time as I love the affect that they created. 
I had so much fun with this and I have decided that it was so much fun that I would do a little fairy from Mo's Digital Pencil, called Yuriko the Fairy, with Koh-i-Nor colored pencils and OMS.

I really like this technique also.  The Koh-i-Nor colored pencils come in only 24 colors and I used a flesh color that I purchased separately from the set.  The colored pencils are blended with OMS and paper stumps. 
I guess you will let me know if you think that I have lost my mind and should just use my copics and all will be right with the world but it is fun to do something a little different for a different look once in awhile :)

I have a darling card for you tomorrow using the new freebie from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Can you believe that Mo's Digital Pencil group has grown to over 1200 members?   The image is the cutest sad looking White rabbit from Alice in Wonderland who is distraught because he was late, very late for the very important date!!!

The white rabbit image was watercolored and so far it is my favorite, so be sure to stop back by.

Well my week-end is over and I have to go back to work on Sunday.  See you all tomorrow night.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy Coloring

Cathy, Copics or not. These are amazing. The Mo's image that you colored looks so fresh and I love the watercolor look.
The April Shower's image is amazing too. I know I say this all the time, but you are a wealth of talent!

Wow, Cathy! These are awesome! I love the watercolor crayons you used. I have been thinking about getting them and NOW they are on my wish list. Thanks for showing us other coloring techniques.

Wowza! BEAUTIFUL job!!! I've taken a break from my copics for today, as well. Love prismacolor pencils/gamsol as a "change it up" every now and then. I SUCK at watercolors, though! You're amazing!

Your angel is absolutely delightful! As much as I love my Copics, I don't think they are the end-all. All our techniques have a place in our art.
