Spotlight on E markers & a Greeting Farm video

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some brown inspiration! Once a month, I post a card featuring one colour family - this should have come earlier, but due to my body taking too much time to accept my vaccine, the post is coming now ;) I picked Es for today. 

There are 30 E Ciao and 53 E Sketch Markers, a very large collection for tons of combinations. My card today uses 13 E markers, E000, 00, 04, 11, 33, 40, 41, 43, 57, 59, 71, 77, 79 and no other colours. Here is my final card:

The stamp I used is by The Greeting Farm, called Flirty Anya. I used Spellbinders dies, Bo Bunny DPs and a sentiment by the Greeting Farm.

You can see the whole colouring process below:

There are lots of techniques in this video, of course colouring skin and hair, creating a simple background suggesting a wall behind a character, rendering shadow and light, and using the tip to tip technique to create a "middle" colour:

That's what I did for the dress - E71 and E77 being too far apart, I took colour from the nib of my E77 with my E71, so that I would have a smooth transition between the 2 colours, as if I were creating a new colour, equivalent to E74. It's a very convenient technique if you don't own all Copic markers, or if one of your markers needs to be refilled ;)

Here is a close up on the image and the list of all Copics I used:

Face: E000, 00, 04, 11, 71
Hair: E33, 57, 59
Outfit & Flower: E71, 77, 79
Background: E40, 41, 43, 47

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by! Hugs,
Delphine xx

As always I made my drawing with multiliner copics.

E000 for the base of the complexion.

Complete complexion and cheeks with E21 and V000.

I start coloring eyes with YG41.

Y02 for the eyes.

I continue with YG67 for the eyes.

B60 to give shade to the eyes.

W-7 for eyelashes.

Y000 for the hair base.

I keep coloring hair with Y02.

V91 to complete the hair.

V000 for the base of the skirt.

V91 for the skirt.

C-3 to give shade to the skirt.

BV000 and C-1 for shirt.

C-1 and C-3 for boots.

W-1 and W-3 for shade under boots.

I use a white gel pen for light points.

This is the end result.

I hope you enjoyed it, I will be back next month with a new post!

For You | Anti-stress Copic Doodling with Video

How are you? A little stressed?

Today I am sharing a new anti stress doodling with my Copic, highly recommendable!

I have started with a piece of Perfect Colouring Paper a stencil from Kraftin Kimmiestamps (kaleidoscope) and a black Copic multiliner 0.3.

I have traced some of the circles. This design will just be my guideline.

Here you can see the shapes I have traced from the stencil, now I have started to add Copic colors and connect the shapes with doodles.

Just relaxing.. no thinking ..
I have picked some blue greens and yellow greens and to give it a pop also some fluorescent colors,
see list below.

I have made a little video for you.

And did you like the video?
Fun to see what effects you create with two multiliners and little Copic marker.
And some dots with a white gelly roll pen.

I have glued the design onto a black card ,
The fishtail die is from My Favorite Things
The text was cut out of foam with a die from Modascrap.

I like the contrast..end result a card and I am totally relaxed too :).

Copic multiliner black 0.3
Copic multiliner black 0.5
"fluorescent" : FBG2, FY1, FGG2
YG :YG 01, YG 23
BG: BG 11, BG 15, BG 18
