Copic "Bleaching" + Watch me struggle with the design of a card

Hi there everyone! I'm finally here with a new card! This was a difficult week in terms of getting anything done and I had to delay my Friday post. Let's take a look at this card and a coloring "technique" (probably not a technique) that I have called "Copic Bleaching". 

¡Hola a todos! Por fin estoy por aquí con una nueva tarjeta. Ha sido una semana difícil a la hora de concentrarme en el trabajo y por eso he tenido que retrasar mi entrada de los viernes. Vamos a echar un vistazo a esta tarjeta y a una "técnica" (probablemente no lo sea) que he llamado "Copic Bleaching".

I decided to use my Copics in a slightly different way and instead of choosing colors that are close to each other, I did the opposite. As a result the lightest color will "eat" the darker ones and create a blending that I find interesting :). 
You can watch how I colored the flowers (and how I struggled bit time to finish this card) in the video below or at my Youtube channel

He decidido usar mis rotuladores Copic de una forma ligeramente diferente y en vez de elegir colores cercanos los unos de los otros he hecho lo contrario. Como resultado, el color más claro se "come" a los colores más oscuros y crea un efecto que me ha parecido interesante :). 
Podéis ver cómo he coloreado las flores (y lo mal que lo he pasado para terminar esta tarjeta) en el vídeo de aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube

Hope you liked it! Thank you so much for stopping by!

¡Espero que os haya gustado! ¡Muchísimas gracias por la visita!

  1. This card is amazingly lovely (in all the attempts). I found that when life gets in the way of crafting, I resort to making VERY SIMPLE cards. That helps a little. Good luck with your move!

  2. Amanda my dear, you give yourself far too little credit. (I get it, I am my own worst critic as well! LOL) However, every attempt you made was spot on! A beautiful card in every attempt.
    Now, got take some time to move and rest and regroup. Believe me, you are worth waiting for and we WILL be waiting but we want you to be in your best place because you are great! (((HUGS)))

  3. Gorgeous card!! I struggle alot!! I normally give up though, at least you finished your card!!

  4. Thanks a lot for sharing. I do love the final result. (One beautiful one also would have been the central part with blue background on the only black stamped large background). I sometimes struggle so much that I end up with no card at all !
    Good luck with your moving and so on !!

  5. All of your attempts were lovely. I so enjoy watching your videos. Moving can be very stressful, so take the time you need to look after yourself as well. I for one will look forward to your return when the timing is right for you! Until then, keep smiling and take care. Kind Regards, Dotty :)
