Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share Black and White inspiration! It's sometimes difficult to know which markers to buy when you start your Copic collection - there are so many to choose from! - but I think buying Grey markers is always a great investment since you can use them for shading and for monochrome images. My C markers were the ones I bought very early and I never regretted that choice, I use them a lot!
For today's post, I have chosen an image from Make it Crafty called Primrose.
With black and white, I always try to alternate between light and dark areas so that a light colour will be next to a dark area - not too many dark areas next to each other otherwise you sometimes cannot see the drawing very well.
So first I coloured the skin, choosing my lightest colours - I used C00, 0, 1, 2.
Next I coloured the hair with my darkest markers - 100, C5, 7, 9. I even let a very few spots white for highlights.
The flowers were done in a light colour because most of them were next to the black hair, using C1 and C4. For the leaves, I used C5, 7, 9.
I also added touches of light grey to the banner in C00, 0, 1 - because white is never just white and needs colouring too.
I stamped a sentiment in the banner, added a little heart chipboard and used black Bo Bunny DPs for my base. And voilà!
Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
