Good morning Copic Friends.
There are 2 ways to start colouring. Sometimes I just start and choose the colours I love to use. I let the images inspire me.
But I demo at craft shows and shops a lot too and on those days I make lots and lots of backgrounds. So on other days I choose a background I have previously made and become inspired by this background to choose the colours.
For today's creation I have chosen a background I made some time ago. It has a limited palette of colours, pink, blue and violet, so I decided to use the same colours for my images.
The images are by Dylusions.
I always start with the face first. I used E50 as a base colour.
Add BV00 for shading.
Add E00 to get a warmer skin tone and blend all the layers together with E0000.
For the pink part of the images, I start with RV21.
To create more depth use RV29 first than RV25 and RV23 and blend the layers toegther with RV21.
I use the BV series next. I start with BV00. Use BV02 and BV04 to create more depth and blend all layers together wih BV00.
The toadstools will be blue. Again I start with the lightest colour first; B23.
Use B29 next and then B28, B26 and B24. Blend all the layers together with B23.
Use the same blues for the border; B23, 24, 26, 28 and 29.
Cut out all the images and glue them on your background.
I found this funny quote on the internet.
Have a fabulous day,
