My friend Rach shared a great tutorial here on using Copics to color an image to look like a black and white photo. And Color Me Copic is having their first challenge which is to create a card using her technique.
I really wanted to challenge myself and here's my card using WS Dee Dee.
Coloring the image in black and white tones was pretty similar to coloring in sepia tones. I used five Copic colors from the Cool Grey family: C00, C3, C5, C7 and a touch of C9.
I love the old fashioned look and it's a bit nostalgic for me. I can remember when photos were printed only in black and white.
Thanks for a great tutorial, Rach! I think I'll be trying this again...and I need to buy more C refills.
