Colouring a Copper Robot

Hi all. Today I am sharing how I coloured a copper robot. The little robot I used is from Create a Smile Stamps set called Same Frequency. 

I stamped it onto my favourite paper for colouring,which is Perfect Colouring Paper by Holtz using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

The colours I'm using for the robot are E08, E37, E95, E97, E99. 
I start with E37 which is the darkest colour and just apply a little where I am going to have my darkest areas. 

Next I add some E99, dragging out the E37 

Again, I drag the colour towards the centre using E08, which adds a red undertone. 

Apply some E97 until you almost have all the image coloured. 

Finally, apply E95 to the remaining white space. 

You can keep going over the image using your colours until you are happy with the shading. To add more definition, go back with the E37 at the end. 

I used R14, R17 and R37 for the heart and buttons.  

On the flower pot - BG01, BG53, BG57 and BG07 
and the flowers/leaves I used the rest of the colours you see below. I also used BV000 to add a little shading to the eyes. 

And now he's ready to cut out and use on your card. 
I hope you like him, and you are inspired to take out your markers today.
