Rain Effects with Copic Markers – MFT Stamps – Rain or Shine
I was really excited to see MFT Stamps latest release that had sets that rain and cloud elements. It really took me back to when I was a child, and we were expected to walk to school in all kinds of weather. I can remember my best friend, Julie, and me holding onto the umbrella we were using for dear life and battling our way to school about a mile through a really heavy storm. For some reason, my parents never offered to drive us to school. And we didn’t ask!
Most of the time, walking in the rain wasn’t that big of a deal, and we splashed happily through puddles as long as our boots weren’t leaking!
ANYWAY, I ordered some of this great release and decided that for my next video I would show you how I get rain effects with Copic markers. I’ll hasten to add that I am not Copic certified (and since they have ended that program, I won’t be). I have never taken a class in Copic coloring. I’ve taught myself. So someone who is certified and was trained by Copic professionals might approach this quite differently. I like the results I get, though, and I am hoping you enjoy learning how to do this the way that I do.
I used the new set Rain or Shine for this card. Lookie:
STINKIN’ CUTE! That duckie just makes me so happy! I made this card also for MFT Stamp’s Weekly Sketch Challenge 380. I didn’t exactly follow the sketch, as I didn’t want to cover up so much of the circle and my little girl, so I moved the circle to the left.
I chose my colors based on a handy chart that MFT Stamps provides to the Copic colors that match their card stock and ink.
I wanted a background that had some pattern to it that was subtle and wouldn’t fight with the image. Originally, I planned to use a patterned paper from MFT, but it was too busy, so I used MFT Stamps Cloud Edges stencil to do the background piece with MFT Stamps’ Berrylicious card stock and ink.
I added a bit of Doodlebug Design washi tape and a couple of Sprinkles.
I love how it turned out! My video is below. I ended up buying myself a USB microphone to help improve my sound, but then I got a few tiny places with some static, which is annoying to me, but it resisted any attempts to remove it, at least without destroying the sound quality. Hopefully, next time, I can record without this happening, so please forgive the flaws in sound quality this time (my voice overall sounds better though):
