This week's Impression Obsession challenge is all about favorite techniques. I know that my favorite techniques always involve coloring, but I couldn't decide between Copic markers or watercolor pencils. Therefore, I had to post both. :)
For my first card, I used Leigh Hannan's Peppermint Moon (G2457)as well as Copic markers and Wink of Stella glitter pens. For the background, I used the new Ledger Cover a Card background (CC165). I love that you get such bright, bold results with Copic markers. As a contrast, I like the softer muted tones that you can get from watercolor pencils.
For my second card, I used watercolor pencils on the Autumn Tree (E7726). The background is a combination of both the Ledger Cover a Card (CC165) as well as the Mesh Circles Cover a card (CC161). I almost said combining Cover a Card backgrounds was my favorite technique, but I thought that I might be pushing it.
