As I mentioned in a previous post I had bought some Copic markers recently. I swore I wouldn't get into buying them because of their price but then I just saw such cute things done with them on all of your blogs so they became a "have to have". I bought a few...not many...I really wanted some do do faces with so I bought a set of skin colored markers...then I bought some others...and then a few others...and...and...
Here is my first attempt at some blending.
I watched a few tutorials (well, really only 1) and thought...well, what can be so tough about coloring? I've been coloring as long as I can remember! I've taken a few art classes so get the idea of highlights and shading so figured it would be about the same. Well, it's not as easy as it looks! HAHA...so now I will be watching more videos and tutorials!
I used the cute little digital image from Whimsie Doodles and just colored away.
Since I had some "bleed" above her head I just ended up cutting the cute little girl out and mounting her on a frame cut out with a Spellbinder die which was inked with some Stampin' Up ink (can we say run on sentence?). I used some pretty paper from K and Company for the card base and added a bit of seam binding for a bow which I tied with my great little handmade BOW MAKER seen HERE. I put a couple of little pearls on her hair bows and used a little white Signo pen work.
She's cute...I can live with her but will be trying to improve those coloring skills! :)
Happy Sunday and Happy Crafting!
