Hello there. Phew – it’s been a busy week. I have made time to practice my Copic colouring, but found I was colouring loads of things – but never making a card. So – here is one I made this evening:
I ink blended a background with three blue colours, and decided not to splatter or splash or change those blues, as I like how clean and almost pure it turned out. This was placed behind the Lawn Fawn backdrop die. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted ‘Merry Christmoose’ stamp set.
Once I had stamped and Copic coloured the reindeer/moose I die cut them and stuck them down as you see. I only used a couple of colours on these images, as I am still learning about shading etc.
The trees are from MFT ‘Ready, Set, Snow‘ also coloured, die cut, and slotted into the background. This time I used three green colours – gosh…….I’m getting very fancy, aren’t I? 🙂
I added some sparkle to the tress and to the top of each of the hills, which is slightly showing on the photo – much better in ‘real life’.
The photo was taken in a light box I recently purchased, as I found that being able to take bright pictures at this time of year – winter, UK – is quite difficult. This is the other picture:
This is something else I’m trying to get to grips with – but I think I need a bigger box………..gonna have a look later….
So, what with the light box and colouring, it’s a learning curve at the moment for me. I bought some Copics recently, and am really loving playing with them. I also joined the Kit and Clowder Monthly Colouring Class, and even just playing with the first two lessons – video and work-sheet – I feel I have learned lots about using Copics, and using a light source.
Here is my practice sheet:
The odd coloured berry at the top is using a different set of reds – not bright enough for me so I changed them……………I don’t think I’ve done too badly with my first lesson…..positive thinking!
I shall be entering the card into the following challenges:
The Alphabet Challenge – ‘R’ for Reindeer
Crazy 4 Challenges – a card that features a tree
Try It On Tuesday – winter wonderland
Inkspirational challenge – anything Christmas
