Sparkling Birthday Queen

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing an image I coloured using both Copic Markers and Copic atYOU Spica pens. The stamp I'm using is Oddball Birthday Queen from Stamping Bella

First I coloured the image with my Copics
Skin - E00, E53, E11 and E04. On the eyelids I only added a touch of E00 as I will be colouring them in a different colour later. 

For the hair on this image, I love to use bright pink! 
The colours I chose were RV14, RV17 and RV19. I started with RV14 to lay out the lines

I introduce the RV17 and RV19 and play around with them until I am happy with the colour. 

On the dress I used B12, B14, B16 and B18. Again, I take the lightest colour and mark out where I want my pleats to go. 

Going to from light to dark I introduce each of the blues. 

For the crown I used Y21 and Y26. 

Boots - N3, N5 and N7

Taking the same pink as for the hair, RV17, I colour in the stripes on the tights. 
On the cake I used E51 and E53 for the sponge, V12 and V15 for the frosting/icing, RV14 for the filling and C1 on the plate and skull. 

Once my image is fully coloured I picked matching glitter pen colours. Sky Blue and Baby Blue for the dress and Gold for the crown. I also use a white gel pen for the highlights. 

First I apply dots of glitter to the dark areas with Sky Blue. I let it dry a little in between colours and in between reapplying any of the colours. 

I then use the Baby Blue in the lighter areas - again, letting it dry before going to the white gel pen. 

I add the white gel pen to the lightest areas and I also add some crosses to give the impression of sparkle. 

I also apply the blue glitter to the eyelids and apply the Gold glitter pen and white gel pen on the crown. 

And now the image is ready for a card. I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and that it inspires you to take your markers out today.
