Copic Creations challenge

The first challenge is 'colouringface/skin tones' for the Copic Creations challenge. Just look at the DT cards - all I can say is WOW!

As a copic newbie, skin tones can be tricky - it's easy to make you characters look too pink, or they end up looking like a golden roast chicken! My first attempt at this little cutie was rubbish - she looked very rosy indeed! This one is a little better, but I did make a bit of a boob with the blue marker - it got onto her foot and I couldn't get rid of it with the blender pen.

I've used these Copic Ciao pens: R00, R20,R22, R35, RV42, B60, B93, B95, B97, E000 (Sketch pen), E00, E02, E31, E35, E51, Y17, Y21, Y28, Y38, YG03, W1.
I added in a few white highlights with my trusty Ranger Inkessentials pen.

I've been helped massively by Marianne's and Claudia's blog tutorials, but I've still a way to go (and lots more Copics to buy!!). Suzanne's blog is a great place to learn techniques, too.

The image is a Sarah Kay stamp, 'picnics of daisies'. These images are more detailed and time-consuming than the Tildas, but so gorgeous.


  1. What a darling card. Your coloring is wonderful and I think you'll grow to love your copics more and more. Thanks so much for joining our first challenge. Hope to see you back.

  2. What an adorable card. You colored her so perfectly. I think you did a fantastic job with this challenge!


I'd love you to leave a comment, makes me happy to read them!
