The Grey Mare

Here's a stamp I received for a gift from a friend on SCS.  This was my first color with it and I really struggled with the you can probably tell!  Glad I have the stamp for endless images to practice with.  Next time I'll add some clouds to the background as well.

For the horses I used the "cool" greys.  I also used a  #0 "blender" pen to pull some of the grey color out of the areas I wanted to highlight on the horses.
If your new to the blender pen, make note to self.  This pen does not blend, it pulls/draws the color out of the paper.  Good news is, if you screw up...just add your color back in and try again!


  1. Hi Leslie,

    Welcome to the world of blogging! I just adore your mare card and love horses. I am new to copics too. After exhausting all efforts of finding a class in my area I decided to teach myself. Have a great day!

  2. Thank you! So glad you didn't wait around and sit on the fence, but jumped right in with your ambition!
