I'm so happy to share with you our first Tiffany Tutor Tutorial! Michelle has made an adorable card colored with copics! So without further ado...... Here's Michelle from Scrapweaver!
Hello Tiffany Doodlers! I am so excited to be here and thrilled to be bringing you some fun tutorials using Tiffany’s amazing digital images! Today I have created a card using the cricket from the Fall Critter set. I have colored the image with Copic markers and created a simple card for him to perch on.
Step #1 - Color the entire leaf with your YG93. Really saturate the area with small circular strokes.
Step #2 - Using your YG95 use the veins in the leaf to guide your first layer of shading from the center vein outward.
Step #3 - The last layer on the leaf is the YG97. Add this color in smaller amounts along the same areas.
Step #4 - Using first your YG95 and then your YG93 blend the layers on your leaf together. Next fill in your cricket with BG93. * A lot of people have an easier time doing smaller sections of an image, you can break the cricket into two sections head and body. I color the whole thing at once so my tutorials can stay a reasonable length.
Step #5 - Add your first layer of shading with your BG96. I have added mine around the bottom and left edge of the head, the left edge of the back legs, from the bottom edge of the back plate upward and around the left and bottom edges of the underside sections.
Step #6 - Add your third layer on your cricket with your BG99. Hit the face, legs and back plate in smaller amounts. I did not add this third color to the underside, it just got too muddy with the darkest color added there.
Step #7 - I used my BG96 and then my BG93 to blend my layers together.
Step #8 - I did some very tight fussy cutting around my cricket and then used pop dots under the leaf and regular adhesive under the cricket and added him on top of my card.
