Coloring Images with Copic Markers!

Learn how to color beautiful stamped images using Alcohol Ink markers. There are a variety of Alcohol based markers on the market and they are awesome! They blend smoothly and flawlessly, leaving no marker lines behind. 

They also come in ultra pastel shades for a wide range of applications. I'm using Copic Markers in this post, but the same techniques apply to all Alcohol Based Markers.

Let's get sidetrack first:

You are Outstanding in your Field!

Haha, love the scarecrow this time of year!
I like simple cards because they are so easy to mail...if they are too bulky or covered in
 embellishments they cost extra to I go simple and highlight the image.

Supplies Needed to  Color Images with Copic Sketch Markers!

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
White Cardstock
Alcohol Ink Markers

Step 1: Skin Color 

I have very white I use E00, E000 and E0000...but basically you just need 3 colors in the tone you want.

I love how incredibly light the pigment is in these markers. 

 Start with the lightest and color all the skin.

Then move to the darkest shade (E00) and color the shadow areas...

Around the hairline, cheeks, etc.
Then blend the areas together with the in-between color!

Step 2: Cheeks!

 Next I use R00 and R20 for the cheeks!

Just a little R20 on the cheeks and blended out with the R00

 Step 3: Hair

For the hair, I'm going 3 shades in the same color family again.

Start with lightest color and fill in all the hair.

Then add lines of the darkest around the edges, leaving a highlight through the center. Then add the medium shade to blend them a little more.

Step 4: Accessories and Clothes

For the clothes, I use 2 shades and keep it simple...use the lightest to color in the clothes and accessories and the darker shade to add some shadow.

Step 5: Card Making Time

Then cut out the image. I used glitter cardstock, a doily, a paper flower, a yellow brad
and some mounting foam tape.

Cut the doily in half and glue it on the card like this.

Stack the flowers, add the brad and hook it on the card...

Leave off the brad if you want this to go through the mail without additional postage. 

Then add some mounting foam to the back of the beautifully colored image.

Then place her right on top! Perfect and simple!
