Thankful For You and FAVE Copic Combos.....

Hello everyone !! Happy Friday !!
Mayra here from Mayras Designs with today's post <3.
This is an exciting post , I am going to be sharing
my favorite magenta/pink/burgundy color combination .

I love the RV69,66 and 63 colors together .
When I first began my collection of Copics
(believe me I still have a way to go before it is complete )
I wanted to get two to three colors of each color family
that I thought I would be using the most .

While Magenta might not be a basic color
to start with , I loved the way the color
looked on the caps ( lol ... yes that was my deciding factor) .

When I color , I switch between beginning with my darkest and lightest .
For these , I started with the darkest color the RV69 Peony , For the soft green
... another FAVE and this is a new color combination for me I used the BG96.

I then layer the mid color RV66 Raspberry for the burgundy tone 
and the BG93 over the green area . 

I then go over the areas that are left with the lighter color 
RV63 for the magenta/burgundy 
and BG90 for the soft green. 
I continue to repeat the process from darkest to lightest until 
I achieve the color I am going for . 

Here is a card I created with the same came colors . 

I hope you enjoy and try out my 
favorite magenta color combination: 
RV69,66 and 63 
My fave soft green color combination: 
BG96 , 93 and 90 . 
For my little mice I used 
E50, 41, 31 , and E35 with a bit of E44 . 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !
