New Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too!
I’m using Impression Obsession’s Die You & Me and I’ve die cute several white pieces of the cut out and layered them together, then I cute out the same You and Me die but this time I cut out part of the flowers I colored and laid the flower You & Me on top of all the white ones. This is making it extra thick so when I glue it back in place it stands higher than the rest of my image. I love how you can see the white between the layers.
Copic Markers Beginner’s Tutorial – Coloring Flowers
Ok, this is such an awesome tutorial if you are new to Copics. This stamp set, Beautiful Flowers by Simon Says Stamp is AWESOME, it stamps so perfectly crisp and there’s already shading in the stamp to help you determine where to put the darker colors. I’m stamped my image in Memento Ink and Stamped onto my Copic Xpress it Blending Card.
So, since we are only putting shades per color down, I’m going to start with the lightest color, G82 and fill in all the leaves.
Then go back down the center of the leaves and darken the center and flick going out on some of those little veins in the leaves.
Then, you’re going to fill the flowers in with RV32.
Now, look back between the 2 photos all those little lines that give the flower character is your shadowed areas. If you are ever coloring a flower that doesn’t have lines just remember the flower will be darker in the center and underneath the petals and leaves. So, now take your RV34 and flick out towards the lighter area darkening those shadowed areas.
You will see there’s a little bit of a harsh line between the RV32 and RV34, so now you’re going to take the lighter color, RV32 and blend out the harsh line between the 2 colors by starting with in the RV34 and flicking into the RV32. This will soften in between the 2 colors so there’s a smooth gradient.
So there we have it a gorgeous flower bouquet and only colored using 4 Copic Markers!
