Hi! So, after my last post I spent a few minutes enhancing the elephant image I coloured. I didn't do much, but I think it makes a big difference. Here's my original elephant, coloured using B21, B24, and B28 (blues) and RV23, RV25, and RV29.
To enhance the image, I added just a little bit of shading with B60, pretending that the sun was shining from the upper left. It's pretty light in the scanned image, but it is there. Then I used E31, E33, and the blender marker to create some earth for the elephant to stand on. And to finish it off, I used G24 and G28 to add a few little clumps of grass around his feet. They came out a little thicker than I wanted them to, but you get the idea.
That's it for today! To learn how to colour with Copics, check out my class at Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap on September 28 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. It's sure to be fun!!
I started making cards in the fall of 2003 and have since tried my hand at a number of paper arts, including rubber stamping and its many related techniques, quilling, scrapbooking, and making mini albums. If it's tiny, intricate, or takes hours to complete, I'll probably love it. Detail and I are good friends! :)
Since the spring of 2007, I've been teaching various paper arts classes at Bizzy B's Stamp & Scrap -- a great little paper arts store in Bloor West Village. Visit the website at www.bizzyb.ca to see the class schedule. Hope to see you there!
