Down on the farm with Ruby

I knew it would not be too long before Ruby made another appearance on my blog.......

I have had a few enquiries as to whether I would be teaching faces......and "the eyes" during my Copic class at My Favorite Things..........sadly I am unable to include all the techniques I am known for..........I will maybe have to cover that in another class!

More information on my upcoming classes can be found HERE - please note Saturday is sold out but I do still have a few spaces available on Sunday.........and did I mention I am bringing scrummy English Cadbury Chocolate with me for all my students!!! 🍫🍫🍫

Right, back to todays card.  This time, I wanted to add a little more detail than of late so I included a dotty pattern with Copic to the farmers shirt.  Then once I had completed all the Copic colouring I went over certain areas, namely her hair and hat with coloured pencils (Caran D'Ache Pablo) oh and a added a smudgy bit of extra detail to her face......you can draw finer lines with pencils!

For those of you who like to play along and give my projects a go yourselves, here is a list of the colours.  Just remember if you are planning to add pencil to your Copic work, you must do it once you have finished all your Copic colouring.....you will damage your nibs if you use your markers on top of pencil work.

Stamps: MFT Green Pastures, The Whole Herd
Paper: Copic card, Trimcraft Lillibet paper pad
Colouring Medium: Copic markers
Tools: MFT Gravel Grey Hybrid ink, MFT Blueprint 24, Misti

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you have enjoyed todays post, more to come soon including my latest piece of Copic fine art.

Happy Colouring
