Let's get coloring with Craftin Desert Divas

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I'm sharing some of my Copic Marker coloring tips, and one of my favorite combos, together with Craftin Desert Divas Designteam in our Coloring Challenge

I got the best tip from some of my crafty girlfriends, when I bought my first Copic Markers, and I want to pass it on to all of you: Color and write it down!  I always write the combos I like down in my little Copic bible, or if I want to remember what colors I used to color a certain image. Sometimes I color on a little piece of Neenah Cardstock (my favorite cardstock) and write the numbers on that. 
Ohh and I always have my Hex Chart next to me when I'm coloring - really can't live without it!!

I just love pastels, white layers and Distress Oxide stencil backgrounds, so that's what I'm showing you today with this adorable card. 

Okay, let's get coloring <3 

The favorite Copic Marker combos I'm going to show you today: W0-W1, G0000-G000-G00-BG32.

I wanted to give this little cutie from 'Brighter Days' a very soft look, so I only added shadings using W0 and W1. I colored very close to the edges of the stamp, and then used my Colorless Blender 0, to make the edges soft. Using Colorless Blender 0, is a great way to soften the edges, I use that a lot in my coloring.
I gave her some soft pink cheeks using E0000, and for her little nose I used R20.

For her cute little outfit I used my all time favorite combo G0000-G000-G00-BG32 <3 
I always use the lightest tone first, all over the image, and then I go darker to add shadings. Again I wanted a very soft look, so I just added a soft shading to the outfit too. The collar, laces , hat and ears got a bit of coloring with YR0000.

The sweet little butterflies are both colored with R00 and E93. I only colored the wings close to the body, that way the butterflies looks shiny. The net and butterfly box are colored with E41 and I added some BG0000 to the glass box.

Oh how about that little mouse, is it cute or what! Again I used W0-W1, and for the ears I used E0000-R00.

For the background I used Distress Oxide Tattered Rose, together with the new 'Swirl' stencil. Again I made a soft look by letting the color fade out in the edges.
Oh, and is that stencil amazing or what, I just love it!

I cut out my colored background. together with a white using 'Fancy Frame Dies'. I stamped the sentiment "You make me" from 'Happy Sentiments' with a mix of Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick.

I used 'Happy Die' to cut out a soft pink "Happy" and added it beneath the sentiment I stamped, and then I added some sequins from 'Shimmer Sequins'.

The final result, a sweet pastel card.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you got a tip or two you can use.
