A Sassy Halloween

Hi girls!
Helen here, hoping to inspire you all today to color that Halloween card you might haven´t done yet.
I don´t have a Halloween image, but I got inspired by this image and used orange, purple and green to get the feeling for the holiday. It mustn´t be scary, it can be sweet as well, the feeling comes with the colors.

The image, Sassy, is from Mo Manning and it is stamped on Perfect Coloring Paper with Memento ink.

I started on another paper but I didn´t get the cheeks right, so when I started again, I started with the hair, and of course I forgot to take photos of each step.

For the hair I used: YR21 - E97 - E99 - E18

This time I colored in a different way. I use to start with my lightest shade and cover the whole area, but this time I started with the parts I wanted a red tint on, used R00.

On top of the R00 I went in with E000 and covered all skinparts.

Then I used BV20 for the deepest shadows.

On top of the BV20 I went in with E53.
The purple will end up with a nice contrast to the skincolor and when you wash it with another E-color on top, the blueness tends to disapear, and you end up with a nice deapth in your shades.
Right now the contrast is hard, but I know that when I´m finish I will have a nice shade and not so much contrast.

Blending with E50.

Blending with E0000.
And her lips got R00 - E04

I really don´t like the color purple. So there are very few shades in my stash.
I wanted three shades but as I put down RV95 I realised that I wouldn´t blent it together with V17 for my satisfaction.
So, I have covered the t-shirt with a layer of RV95 and on top of it I went in with V17 and covered that up. For some shades I used V09. The white  piece got some C3 on it.

For her pants I started with YR21.

My darkest tone is YR07 and my midtone is YR14, and some shading with Y26.
The details on the pants has YG61 - YG63.
Shoes: C5 - C7
Socks: W00 - W1 - W3

The grass is: YG11 - YG61 - YG63 - YG67.
And some airdetails; BG70 - BG72.

Hope you enjoyed it.
Wishing you a sweet Hallloween!
Love Helen

Colouring a face and hair with The Greeting Farm


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today, coming back after a little break :) For today's post, I thought I would show how I colour a face and hair with highlights using a cropped image so you could hopefully see well how I do it. I also aimed at using unusual colours for me - pink, which I think can be a bit difficult. 

For my card I used a digi by The Greeting Farm called Miss Anya Bewitch, here is the final card:

I coloured all my elements in Copics, except for a bit of glitter pen for a few details, and and you can see the whole colouring process below:

You will note that I only used 2 colours for my hair - no need to have a ton of markers - and left white highlights to show the paper, a look some people like. Also, to give more depth, I used a grey marker below the pink as a first layer.

Here is a close up of my colouring and a recap of all the Copics I used:

Skin: BV00, E000, 00, 04, 11, 71
Hair: 100, W7
Pink: R85, RV13, 29 (+W7 for hat)
Gold: E35, Y11, YR23
Purple: V09, 15, 17
Background: RV13, 21

After the video, I stamped a sentiment and doodled dots and splatter with my black Copic marker. I also added gold gel pen around the edges of my image.

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

Tea Time

Hello Copic lovers!
Today I am sharing my colouring of a cute girl with cats,books and a cup of tea . The stamp is called CATS COFFEE AND JOURNALS and it is created by the very tallented Krista Smith. I adore her images.

I'm starting with my skim as usual.My skin color combo is E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for the cheeks. I always start with E0000 all over the skin.

I go over my E11 with E21 in order to darken my shadows . Cheeks I color with R20.

For the eyes I used BG01, BG000,B02. Her lips are colored with R00,R20 and R22

I used only 3 colours - E31, E33 and E35 for the hair. I'm starting with the lightest color E31 making long strokes.

The cats are colored withW1, W2,W5 and a touch of E13.

For her bow and her shirt I used R81,R83 and R85.

The skirt is colored with W9,W7,W5 and W2

So there she is, ready to be added to a super cute project. And here is my finished project

That's all from me today. See you soon.

I would love to see you following me on my Instagram and Facebook.
Bye bye!
