Good Morning Everyone,
It's a nice bright sunny day here at the moment... I hope it lasts, I could use a bit of sunshine in my life at the moment :o) I didn't get up to much last night, went driving... AGAIN. I feel like it's all I ever do sometimes and although I like driving when I'm out and about, I don't like the build up to going, I wish I would just pass my test already! pft!
Anyhoo! The fun stuff now,
I decided I'd share with you all how I colour my images, I use copics and normally start with the darkest colour first. I choose where my light source is and put the darkest colours away from this first, so the first image below is how I begin. The colours I have used is E33, E11, YR20, BG10, RV42, R11 & R22. The image I used is called Bubbly Bears by Penny Johnson, you can buy it here they do international shipping should anyone not inside the UK want this stamp :o)
The next colour I have used is E11 I use this to pull the colour more in from the darker shade. You can see below what I've done.I then take YR20 and colour all over the image blending until you can't see a noticeable difference between the shades, this doesn't damage the palest colour at all. You can see below how I've done this.
I then coloured the edges of the glasses and bubbles with BG10 and the bears noses with RV42. I used this colour for the inside of the smaller bear's ear (the girl bear (o:).
Finally I used R11 and R22 for the ground, the main colours in my card I'm using have pink in it so I decided against a brown or grey floor and thought the pinky colours work well.Once finished, I used my nesties on my bug to cut the image out and cut out some glittery paper to mount on to my card. The paper I have used is papermania's confetti (just bought some more of this, it's lovely) The ribbon was holding some jewellery making beads to a card and I thought would work well on this. I used some glamour dust on the champagne glass to make it look sparkly. The butterflies I made using fantasy film. I will explain another time how these are done, it's very easy though! I hope you like the card.
Thanks for looking everyone, I hope my method of colouring my images may help some of you. This method of colouring can also be used with pro-markers, working dark to light or vice-versa should you prefer. Hope you all have a great day! Take Care, Lyns xx
