Well, that’s all we’ve got for you today. I hope that Melissa & I have helped get your Monday off to a wonderful start! Kelli will be here tomorrow to share  Tuesday Tips and Tricks.

Shading

Written by Tracy Valure. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello! Tracy here today with a card I created using Tilda with Pencils from the latest Magnolia Collection. Which in case you didn’t know is now in the store and shipping!!

I colored Tilda with Copic markers.  Typically when I color I’m a little  heavy handed. Today I went extra heavy because I wanted to talk a little bit about how I shade. I colored my image just as I normally would but then I went back in with W’s. Mostly W4 and W7. I added in W7 in the darkest areas to give my image more depth. On my lighter colors, like the pencils, I mostly used W4. Had I gone with too much of the W7 in the light yellows, I felt it would have been too dark.  I also added W4 along the face where the hair would make a bit of a shadow. W’s are also great  for shading REDS.

You can see in the above  photo the gray tones.

Copic Colors used:

Hair: E21, E23, E29, W7
Clothes: BG70, BG10, BG72, BG78, W4, W7
Pencils: Y11, Y15, E33, W4, W7
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, W4
Shadows: BV20, Bv23, W1, W0

Supplies:

Paper:  Echo Park , Sweet Day
Twine:  Bakers Twine, Sunkissed
Dies: My Favorite Things, Scallop Die

Thanks for looking today and I hope that you give some deep shading a try on your next project!

 

Hugs,
Tracy Valure

Hi, everyone!  It’s Kelli and today I have a cute card to share with you that features the little seahorse from the Under the Sea Mae set by Some Odd Girl.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored him with Copics:
body- Y35, Y15, Y13, Y11
belly- BG13, BG11
head fin- BV02, BV01, BV00
The subtle waves on the card base and the sentiment are both from the same set.
The colorful banners behind the seahorse are a mixture of washi tape, fabric tape and patterned paper.  The thickest one is the Japanese Washi Masking Tape in Lace Dot Mint Green and the striped one is Cotton Fabric Tape in Striped Pale Green & Plum.  This stuff is so cool!  It’s got a great feel to it and it’s really easy to cut, I love it!  I backed the thick mint green tape with white paper so that it would be vibrant since the color shows through.
I finished off the card with a little Glossy Accents on the seahorse and some white gel pen stitch lines.
Thank so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!  🙂

 

Sea You Soon

Written by Kelli Cortes. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi, everyone!  It’s Kelli and today I have a cute beachy card to share with you!  I used the adorable Magnolia – Edwin in Miami stamped in Memento Black Ink and colored with Copics:
skin- E13, E01, E00
hair- E27, E37, E35
shirt and shorts- B26, B24, B23, B21
shoes- E37, E35, C7, C5, C3
starfish- YR16, YR15, Y35, Y15
sand- E55, E53, E50
sky- BG18, BG13, BG11

The sentiment is from the Some Odd Girl – Under the Sea Mae.  I thought it coordinated perfectly!  All the patterned papers are from the Echo Park – This & That Charming 6×6 Pad.  I wanted to try something different so I stippled the sky and sand.  It was pretty fun because there’s no right or wrong way, you just go for it!  I used the darkest colors closest to the image and the went lighter towards the edges of the paper.
I finished the card off with some Glossy Accents on the starfish and an Orange Divine Twine bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!  🙂
