Adding Fur Textures using Copic Markers

Adding Fur Textures using Copic Markers

I’m so excited to get started working on Christmas Cards. I can’t wait till Fall actually hits and the days get shorter and cooler the anticipation of the Holidays.. it’s my absolute favorite time of year.

Today I’m sharing a Christmas card using these adorable stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. Their stamps are the cutest and I love how you can color them up in no time and still get so much details in them. I’m using the stamp set called Cheery Christmas I also cut them out using the coordinating Cheery Christmas dies. The pattern paper is also from Lawn Fawn!

I stamped my Lawn Fawn Stamps on my Copic Xpress Paper using Black Memento Ink. I wanted to share how adding a little bit of texture can really add so much details to your image. In the photo below you will see I colored my little fawn with all the same colors I listed, E33, E31, E30, E37 and E17. You can get such a different look by simply adding more of the dark, or more of the lighter colors.

Then you’re going to want to be Adding Fur Textures using Copic Markers to your little critters AFTER you already fully colored your image. I took my 3 darker colors and added dots all over the image. You want to go back with the lighter color and create dots even if you don’t think they’ll show up. The reason you want to do this is because it will soften the look of the darker dots. You can also add dots creating texture using your blender pen.

What do you think of my watercolor background? If you missed my post the other day about my Copic Marker Watercolor Background tutorial, you have to go take a look at this step by step tutorial. I did the exact same thing with this background but I used W7, BG09, BV08.

Then I took some white pearl paint.. (since my kids used all my white paint for their slime making) and made dots in all sizes for the snow falling behind. I used my favorite Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch.

To create the Snowy hills I just cut out 2 circles, the same size of the circle I cut out my image in. Then I just cut hills in the plain white circles and then used some foam dots to each layer. I LOVE the way it came out but I think next time I won’t use such thick foam dots. 😛

I hope you have enjoyed my post on Adding Fur Textures using Copic Markers. So, are you feeling inspired and ready to create your own Christmas Cards? I hope so!

Next week I’m going to be coming out with a new Digi Stamp for all of my email subscribers, so make sure you’re all signed up.
