Snowman with Bird

Hi there.
Hope you all are fine today!

Helen here, and today I will show an image from CC Design, Snowman and Bird.
I got it as a rubberstamp, but you can get it as a digital stamp from Whimsy Stamps today.

As always I stamped the image on to Perfect Coloring Paper with ink from Memento.

Started off by sketching in the background using C0.

The snow got B70 - B0000 - B000 - B45

The sky got Y000 - Y11 - Y00

The first layer off the ground got E30, and shadows W3.

I outlined the piles of snow with a multi liner.
The ground got E31 - E33 - E35 - E37

The first layer of the tree was E42.
The first layer of the fence was E30.
Sketched a line of trees in the background with C1.

The darkest area of the tree is E47 and the mid-tone is E44.

Scribbled in the bark of the stem with E47 and W3.
I used the very tip of the nip with light pressure, and randomly I got heavier pressure to get the pattern for the bark. The fence got layers of E33 - E35 - E37 - W5

Smoothed the bark pattern out by going over it with E44 - E42.
The shadow on the tree is E47.

The hat and buttons got C3 - C5 - C7
The carrot got YR14 - YR07
The snowman's arms has the same color as the tree.

 The bird got C1 - C3 - C5 - R24
The scarf and the ribbon got BG13 - BG49 -  C1 - C3
And the ground and snow got some shadows from the tree and fence with W3 - C1.

I made an inventory among my stamps and I got a lot of different snowmen and I just want to color them all. Maybe there will be a snowman next time as well...

Have a nice, copic coloring day!

A sweet Ladybug scene and video


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today :) For today's post, decided to create a spring scene featuring a sweet ladybug character, the opportunity to show how to colour grass with highlights, use reds, and colour simple folds. 

For my card I used a digi by Vera Lane Studio called Ladybug, here is the final card:

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

Winter Fairies

Hello Copic lovers!

Today is my turn to get you inspired by using Copic markers! As i said.......I love fairies. Today I am sharing my colouring of two cute winter fairy . They are  called Talva and Hala  by Mos digital pencil.

My skin color combo is E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21 and R20 for the cheeks. I always start with E0000 all over the skin. Maybe  i should try some other skin combos....

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

I've done the skin twice.... I always do. Now I'm happy and I'm going to color 
the dresses.

I decided to use some of my new markers from the BV family.
I used BV 00,01,04 starting with the lightest one by marking the folds of the dresses in order to make them look more realistic.

I do this always twice or until I'm satisfied with how the clothes look like.

I decided to make the hairs blond so I used E 31,33 and a little bit of E 35.

The wings are colored with B00 and B01 where the icicles are and C00,C01,C02 under the icicles.

Aren't they cute? 
Now I'm going to give you a promise...... no fairies in my next post.... Be inspired!

Happy coloring!
See you soon!
