Watercolor vs Copic: The Battle of the Waterlily

Welcome friends,

I started creating cards for this month's class.   I stamped out this waterlily scene.   I wasn't sure if I should use watercolors or copics to color the scene.   I went back and forth and finally decided to do both.    I like them both for different reasons.   What do you think?  Which do you like better?


I used distress inks (abandoned coral and mowed lawn) to watercolor these.  I added the water droplets with salty ocean.  I spayed this with some glitter.  It doesn't show up in the photos.  In truth, I don't think it shows up real well in real life.


Copics used:

Pink: RV17, RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10
Green: G28,  G46, G43, G40
Yellow: Y15, Y17, YR14
I used distress ink to create the water drops
