CLASS: Copic Markers

This is the last of three cards I made for the Copic Marker Class at Destination Marysville. After introducing alot of material and techniques with the first two cards...I wanted to make sure that we could take advantage of of the last two remaining stamps in the set and still learn something that could be used in the future.
Hopefully you can click on the picture and see the details of the purple daisy a little closer. Remember that we were trying to make sure we didn't have to buy a lot of the Copic Markers to take this what is a technique that you can use with only one marker??
Choose your this case, lavender...and then remove color with the "colorless blender" from the middle of each petal. This takes away the intensity of the lavender and makes it look like the sun is leaving light on the top of each petal by exposing the original white of the paper.

One small, small detail is the pink flower...maybe you can see what I mean on the picture below...just touch your marker on the very tip of the petal and stroke inwards lightly. Make sure you leave no color on the end of the petal attached to the center. This helps to give a little color interest to even the smallest flower.

I hardly did a thing to the inside of the card...I figure everyone will be tired and ready to lets just add a little something for when you open the card, and it can still be pretty.
