Subtle shades of green

Hello everyone, Happy Halloween!!

It's Jane here with a few more colouring suggestions........

Copic colours can be vibrant but they can also be used to create soft, delicate artwork
and here is an example of this using the no-lines technique and some of the paler colours within the range.....

A little tip:
Wrapping paper tends to be patterned and yet when we colour our images we often leave them plain.  As you can see I have added tiny dots, stripes, squiggles and small flowers to mine, hopefully making the whole image a little more interesting.

Tiddly Inks - Wryn Birthday Girl
Various dies

Copic colours:
Dress/Bow - G40, YG11, G12, G21, G46, T1, T2, T3, T4, G20

I hope this has inspired you to use some of the paler shades within the Copic colour range and to have a go at adding patterns to your images.

Happy Colouring
