This is my second post of the day so make sure you scroll down to see the latest for the Hambo Hoedown!
There's a new challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge! The challenge this time is Welcome Home! I thought this image would be perfect! I think this sweet little duckling image from Prairie Fairy Designs is just so adorable! It'll be available soon! I coloured it in with my Copic markers: (blossom & bows-YR15, Y17, R22, R20; blossom centre YR21, Y21; bill & feet-YR18, YR15, Y17' stem-YG17, YG07, YG03; ducklings-B91). For added detail, I added a flourish with a white gel pen, and the edging is done with an SU Spiral Punch. I found the green flower trim at the dollar store! The sentiment was done with my labelmaker.
Here's a closeup angle of the card. I popped out the flower and the cute little foot!
You've heard me say it before, my Copic collection is very limited. If I include the 3 new markers that I just bought, I now have 36. I have a lot of patterned paper that doesn't match my Copic colours. So I blend colours until I achieve the right tone. I've created a small tutorial to show you how I do that. The colours I use to create the flower are YR15, Y17, R22, R20.
Step one: Colour the tips of the flower with YR15.
Step Two: Starting at the tips again, colour with Y17 and bring the colour a little further than the last colour.
Step Three: With R22, colour the tips, feathering the strokes toward the middle of the petals.
Step Four: Using R20 and the same feathering strokes, finish filling in the petals.
