Here is another wonderful image from Pixie Dust Studios. I am getting so much more comfortable with my Copic markers. I loved this image when I first saw it and thankfully I had an occasion to make a card.
We have some wonderful friends whose daughter is pregnant with her first child and is due in a few weeks. She is just like one of my daughters so I had to make a really special card for her. She has blonde hair so this was fun to color.
I used the following colors to do her hair:
Y00,Y11,Y21,Y23 and Y28 for shading.
When you do hair it is more like laying down colors rather than blending so you get individual strands of hair. I just kept feathering in colors until I got the right effect. Believe it or not the Y28 is a wonderful color color to use for blonde hair. It seems to make the other colors pop.
I am still practicing on the facial tones but, for now, these are the colors I used:
E000,E00,E01 and R20 for blush
Since Becca wants to be surprised, she and John have opted not to find out what they are having so I colored the clothing with a pink top and blue jeans.
Shirt: R81,R83, R85
I added some liquid pearls to the bracelet. The background card is from a stack I have. I also added some flowers I spritzed with Glimmer Mist and added leaves from a Martha Stewart punch.
Once the image was colored, I hand cut around the edge and mounted on ovals I cut with Spellbinders. Easy peasy!!! I'll be back later with the same image as a brunette.
As always I would love to hear what you think. Hugs for now.
