Tutorial: Colouring wood

Hi everyone!

Today it's me, Deborah, and I have a tutorial for you!
This time I wanted to show you how I colour wood with a little structure.

This is a funny image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and I wanted to give that cute little girl a wooden chair to sit on. 

The first thing to do, is colouring the entire chair with E31 (the lightest colour for wood)

When you've done the whole chair, you have to flick (tiny little stripes) with your E37 where the darkest parts have to be. Just like you colour hair. 

After that, you have to flick with your E35 over the previous flickings for a little blending. Leave enough space between the flicks, you still have to see the E31 peeking through.

Now you need to blend the lines with your E33 marker by flicking again over the previous parts.

Now it's almost ready but we need a little more depth in the wood.
And you can do that with your E59 marker by just flicking where there have to be shadows.
Now the chair really pops.

I hope you had something on this tutorial. If you have questions, please let me know I'll answer them!

Here's my card I've made with this cutie:

Copic colours:
skin: E13, 11, 00, 000, R22, 20
