MFT MAY RELEASE - JUST ADD COLOUR

Hello again, I'm back with one of our newer monthly features:


As you may recall, this is where we showcase elements from our new release with colouring as the main focal point.

I started with a piece of Copic suitable card and cut out a stitched square using the Inside and Out Stitched Square stax. Then with the Basic Shapes Circles stencil, inked random circles with Natural Hybrid ink and turned those simple inked circles in to spheres using Copic makers (available HERE)



I kept the colour palette quite simple by using purely earth tones and greys..........but I would suggest that should you want to try this at home, learn from my mistake and make sure you ink your circles well enough.  I had been a little too light handed with the inking and as it dried I was really struggling to see the circles.........lesson learnt!

COPIC COLOURS:
E11, E13, E15, E21, E23, E30, E31, E33, E34, E40, E41, E42, E43, E50, E51, E53, E55, E81, E84, W0, W1, W2, W3, YR30



Once coloured I adhered the finished piece on to a top folding square Sweet Tooth cardbase, with a Natural mount.  The sentiment, from the the Bubble over with Joy set was stamped onto Copic card with Hybrid Kraft ink and cut using the Fishtail sentiment strip from Blueprints 27.

A different approach when using those stencils in your collection and a great way to practice your Copic shading.

Happy Colouring
