Hello! Julie here today! I hope you are preparing for a wonderful time with family this Easter! I'd like to share some tags that I made for some special kids in my life. I used Copic markers and Derwent Inktense pencils.
I apologize for the pictures. It was the best my phone would do last night. :) The tag above was using Copics and the tags below were using Inktense pencils.
The above video is from our You Tube channel and shows a part of the process of making the tag with Copics. For the most part I did not blend my Copics on these tags since they were for kids and would most likely get thrown away. I went for quanity. lol. I also used my blue cotton candy Gelato to add some color to my white tag.
Once of the things I show you in that video is that I did not have the proper color gemstone for a tag. So I used my Copic marker to color a clear gemstone the proper color! Easy Peasy and a great way to make a colored gem you need but don't own! I used YR07 to get the right orange I needed.
The video from The Scrappy Tree's You Tube page below is using the Derwent Inktense pencils. I just love these pencils. They are an INK pencil, not a water color pencil. They have a very intense color to them that is just wonderful!
The color did not come out to true to life in this video. I think I'll only film during the daytime hours in the future!
Here's a peek at my stash of tags I ended up making:
I plan on tying (or attaching) these tags to a little gift of bubbles for the kids and also a little treat bag of some graham cracker bunnies!
We hope you have a wonderful Easter!
