Baby Fairy

Hello Copic lovers!

Today is my turn to get you inspired by using Copic markers!

Today I am sharing my colouring of a cute fairy . She is called Flidais from the collection 6 Baby Fairies (girls) by Mos digital pencil.

My skin color combo is E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for the cheeks. I always start with E0000 all over the skin.

I go over my E11 with E21 in order to darken my shadows . Cheeks I color with R20.

Cheeks I color with R20. My skin is ready. If I'm not satisfied with the shadows , I repeat the steps again. I always do this twice.

I used only 3 colours - E31, E33 and E35 for the hair. I'm starting with the lightest color E31 making long strokes.

My E33 is followed by E35 also with strokes
I repeat with strokes until I'm satisfied.

For the dress I used RV52, RV55, RV66
starting with my lightest color where the folds should be. Followed with the darker color RV 55 and the darkest RV 66.

Then i blend with RV 55 and RV 52.

My last step is blending with colorless blender the lightest places of the dress.

The wings are colored with B91 and B93 blended with colorless blender.

Her flower crown is colored with the same pinks as her dress
The leaves are colored with G43 and G46.

So there she is, ready to be added to a super cute project.
Isn't she cute?

That's all from me today. See you soon.

I would love to see you following me on my Instagram and Facebook.
Bye bye!

Guinea with a Key

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing how I coloured this super cute Guinea pig image from Stamping Bella called Guinea with a Key

I stamped the image onto Holtz colouring paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

I started with E35 to mark out where I wanted the darker areas. 

I then pulled out the E35 with E33

and then E31

I filled in all the white areas on the fur with E30

For the nose I applied a touch of R22 and blended out into the fur with E21

On the key I started with YR18, then Y26 and finally Y15

To create some shadow on the white area I used E40 and E50

On the feet I used R21 and R30

The tag is coloured using E40, E41 and E42. I blended the colour out with the colourless blender, 0

R32, R35, and R37 for the heart

I then went back in with the E30's and added more colour until I was happy with the fur 

Finally, I grounded the Guinea using W00, W1, and W3 

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you are inspired to take out your markers. Check out our Instagram for more colouring inspiration.

Nuts About You!

Hello everyone.

Helen here!
Today I will show you an image from the Greeting Farm and it is from a stamp set called Forest friends.

I stamped the image on Perfect Colouring Paper with my black Memento ink pad.

My first  coat for the squirrels isYR09 and I cover the whole area where the squirrels should be reddish brown.

Then I went for my shadow color, the darkest, E19.

My midtone wasE08.

And then I went over it once again with YR09 to smoothen it all out.

For the hat of the acorn I used E81-E84.

And the shadow color is E87.

For the white part of the squirrels, I started with W0.

Then I got in with W3 for the darkest colour.

W1 is my midtone. And R11 for cheeks.

Fot the acorn I used E33-E37-E35.
And I sketched in the tree with a light grey.

I starded with the lightest colour for the tree, E31, and the grass, YG03.
I don´t bother to get the colouring even, I know it will be a lot of layers in top of this first one.

With E31 I tried to make a pattern for the cortex. I tried to get some asymmetric rectangles but I wasn´t happy with what I got. But I let it be and strarted to work on top of the result I got.

Instead I got in with my E25 and scribbled in some vertical lines. I varied the pressure on the nib to get both thin and thicker lines. Don´t  overthink this moment, just scribbel on but try to not get an even pattern.

The grass got layers of YG25-YG17, and the sky got a layer of B000.

To darken it all upp the tree got a layer of E29 and E49. 
On the grass I used YG67-YG99.
The sky got B00.
And for the flowers R11.
