Best Sledding

 Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

With Christmas not far away, I feel it's time to start making some cards for it. I actually bought Colorado Craft Company Best Sledding last year and it's been waiting since then for me to colour it up. I decided to go with the no lines technique for an extra little push.

You can watch me colour this lovely image by clicking on the You Tube logo...

Copics Used... 

Sky; BG0000, BG000 

Snow; 0, BG0000, B60, BV20 

Mice; C0, C1, C3/ R00, R30 

Ladder; E84, E87, E89 

Carrot; YR21, YR12, YR15 

Hat; C3, C5, C7, C9/ R43, R35, R37 

Polychromo Pencil; Burnt Umber 

I list all my markers from light to dark, although I don't necessarily lay them down that way.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day...

Spotlight on R markers and a Greeting Farm video

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some red inspiration!

There are 18 R Ciao and 30 R Sketch Markers, ideal for lots of combinations. To feature R markers, I chose a winter image by The Greeting Farm, from the Miss Anya Jingle set and decided to create a little scene using DPs this time as a background. In the R family, my all time favourite marker is R35, the most vivid red I know and I use it all the time in all my red combos. Also, in the R range, you can find beautiful pink and peach tones, some I used on the clothes here. For my card, I picked R11, 32, 35, 37, 59.

Here is my final colouring:

You can see the whole colouring process below:

I coloured my image in  Copics and did some fussy cutting. I picked a DP by Bo Bunny with snowflakes and since it had a few music notes in the corner, I decided my Anya was singing ;) I added a sentiment and some notes from an old Greeting Farm set called Sing Hello. Oh and for my character to have feet in the snow, I tore a piece of glitter paper to suggest snow.

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

Skin: E000, 00, 11, R20
Hair: E35, 79, Y11, YR23
Red clothes: R35, 37, 59, W7
Peach clothes: R11, 32, W3
White: W1, 3, 5
Gold: Y11, YR23, W3

You can notice I use Warm Greys for shading with my reds, I find it makes a difference and greys are the easiest - not the only - way to add shading.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a beautiful day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
