Thinking of you

I made this card for a friend of mine who has been having a rough year. The only thing is, I took the picture and realized I had forgotten to stamp the sentiment on it. I can't say it was a blonde or senior moment either, since I don't fall into either category. I'm just chalking it up to a "Duh" moment. I did add the sentiment before I gave it to her though, so that's all that really matters.

I've had my copics for over a year now and yes I have every color. But, I still feel like a 3 year old when I color. The whole blending thing isn't so bad I think I've gotten a little better with that. What I'm still having a problem with is the whole color matching thing with the numbers. I love to see what other people use for their color combinations and then I'll try that. For me it makes it a little simpler. Any better suggestions on how to pick the colors?

Gotta love short weeks, I wish every week were a 4 day work week, how sweet would that be. All I can say is thank God it's almost the weekend again.

Such a darling card!

For me, I pick the same family colors. So I put my paper next to the chart and find the color that matches the closest.

For example, lets say that the color matched B24, I would use B23 and B21 to blend with it. Or if you want your lightest color to be super light, also use B0000.

I hope that helps a little bit. Also, they say that the number families correspond to all colors too. So if you were using blues in the 20 range, all the color in the 20 range match with them.
