Hello! I hope you all had a good weekend! I did! I spent most of it coloring, lol. My new markers came Saturday afternoon. Having more light colors really makes a difference! I found two more copic video tutorials this weekend too. They are both great! THIS one is by Linda of Linda's Works of Heart, and THIS one is by Sandy of It's a colorful world. I learned a lot from them both. I think my coloring is finally improving! It's also a LOT easier on stamps with more space in them like this one. Unfortunately my camera sucks! This really does look a lot better in person. My camera tends to make things look washed out. There are a lot more light colored highlight areas than you actually see. I wasn't even planning on doing anything with this image. I colored it and was happy with how it came out, so I made it into a card. I didn't write down the colors I used though, since I didn't expect it to actually come out good.
-Stamps-Inkadinkado cornucopica, SU Give Thanks, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
-Paper-Close to Cocoa, White, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie
I bought this cornucopia stamp a while back with the sole purpose of coloring it. I don't send out Thanksgiving cards, so I really don't have a use for it, but I thought it looked fun to color, and would be good practice. I did another one in totally weird colors experimenting with color combinations. I wrote the color numbers I used so I'd remember them later. I LOVE stamps that have the built in shading! It makes it lot easier for me. I'm horrible about knowing where to put shadows. So remember my Copic storage box I posted a couple weeks ago? Well a few of my new Copics wouldn't fit, so I made a new one! I like this one much better! I had to many colors together in the other one that I didn't really like having together, so I put extra 'shelves' in this one.
Here's what it looks like empty. As you can see, so my my shelves are a little crooked, but it's not hurting anything. I made this one So Saffron, because that's the color of my stamp room.
Hope you have a great day!!
