Coloring with Copics, November Fun!!

Posted on by Laura

Hey everyone! Can you believe how quickly this month is flying by??!! It’s time for another Coloring with Copics class and I’m here to show you the card you’ll be making.

This card features an adorable Penguin called Pickle from Wild Rose Studio, cut out with circle and Petite circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders. The trees are by Magnolia, and I’ve used several Martha Stewart punches. The icicle border punch and a snowflake strip that is hidden a little by the trees. If you like lots of sparklies on your card, you are gonna enjoy this one. I’ve used lots of Diamond Stickles which I’ll have available for you in class. That huge snowflake was cut using a Cricut Expression and the Christmas cartrdige. And to top it all off, there’s a silk bow enhanced with beautiful flower and a couple branches from yet another Martha Stewart branch punch.  If you are interested in obtaining any of these supplies, they can be ordered through Laura at Scrapbook Paradise.  Here are the colors of Copic markers I used for the card:

C3, 5, and V25 for Pickle’s body
T1, 2, 4, and blender pen for his belly and face
hat:  base coat of R02, went over that with RV32,  and then went over that with C1 on the bottom part of the hat, and then applied RV32 over that again.  Then I took a little E04 on the bottom part to try and add a little more shading without altering the color too much. The main color in the paper was a real challenge to try and replicate.  :0)
trees:  YG11, 13, 67
present: YG11, 13, 67   Bow: R37, 39
feet and nose: E97, 99

For our lesson this month, we will be working more extensively with highlights and shadows.  Hope to see you there!!
