Monster Sweets

Hi Everyone. My name is Faye and I'm addicted to Copics. I'm here with my very first post at Copic Marker Europe. I apologise if you can hear a high pitched squeal as you read, that noise happens when I get excited!

So, I wanted to share a card that reflects my style, using a Doodle Dragon Image from C.C.Designs...

You'll mostly find me to be a Clean and Simple kind of girl. Mainly because I can never decide where to stick anything else. But also because I like my image to shout! You'll notice I do a lot of doodling.

For this card, I have stamped my image, called Monster Sweets. I coloured his fur first, it was a big area and I wanted to concentrate on adding texture. I didn't blend at all, I lay down my colour by dotting the Marker down. When I was happy with all the shading, (I like to use grey for deep shade on turquoise colours; N5, or T7, for example.) I went over and randomly added some dots of Colourless Blender. The hat, tongue, nose, teeth, claws, lollipop and ground didn't really take long after that.

On an impulse, I decided to use some Glossy Accents on the lollipop, to add some shine and dimension. My tip to you is this... be patient, (not a strong point with me.) let it dry properly before you take your photo.

Markers Used...
Fur; BG10, BG53, BG57, BG78, T7

Thanks so much for stopping by... have a great day.

What a perfect example of your berrrilliant colouring skills, Faye! Love how you've created so much texture in the monster's fur. Will have to try this technique! Hugs, Tracey xx
