Another Copic coloring tutorial to play with on your Tiffany Doodle stamps. This particular butterfly is from Tiffany's "Sweet Butterfly" set.
I used the following products to make my card:
Cardstock - Kraft, X-Press It Blending Card and Coredinations
Patterned paper - My Minds's Eye
Jewels - Hero Arts
Flower - hand made with ribbon, Copics and Gluber
Copics - B00, B02, B63, B66 and 100
To build the card I cut the Kraft cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded the card. I adhered my first patterned paper that is trimmed 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" then added a strip of dark cardstock that had been punched with a border punch. The next layer is one more patterned paper trimmed to 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". Lastly I added my flower and gems to the lower left corner. The card is ready for a butterfly so here are the coloring steps:
Step #1 - Color the top portions of the sections in one wing with your B00.
Step #2 - Add B02 from the bottom of each section upward overlapping the B00.
Step #3 - Use your B63 for the next layer of color.
Step #4 - One last blue layer at the very bottom of each section with your B66.
Step #5 - Blend all your layers together and color in the small dots on that wing, a few in each shade of blue.
Step #6 - Use your B63 to add a highlight color to the body of the butterfly.
Step #7 - Use B66 to add some shading to the body.
Step #8 - Use you 100 (black) to add the darkest layer on the body.
Step #9 - Blend the body layers back together.
Step #10 - Add 100 (black) to all the trim on the wing.
