Go grab a cuppa....today's post is a dooozie!
First of all....the finished card. I will show you how to do all the coloring in the videos below...I have a new camera so I was able to get in closer that you could see a bit better.
Why the new videos?....Because I have NEW paper! Yes, copic released a few brand new products at CHA, one of them being my new favorite paper :)
It is called X-press it Blending Card Stock and it is from our fabulous Australian distributors. Ask for these new products from the stores where you buy your copics as they will be able to order the new paper, masking, and tape products from copic.
Back to the card....After I was done coloring her up I added some great Melissa Frances paper and rub-ons....cute!
Here is a close up of her colored....this is sweet little "Make mine a double" pure innocence image from My Favorite Things.
On to the videos....there are three.
If you would like to see the videos larger then view them directly from youtube and you will get a larger screen.
This first video is the coloring of her skin on the new X-press it blending card stock:
Video #2 Coloring of her dress and hair (one thing I did realize after everything was uploaded is that my camera focused on my tablecloth...therefore the image has a slight blur...sorry bout that, I will pay more attention to that in upcoming videos)
Video #3 New masking product with airbrushing
Here is what is on deck for this upcoming fall....did you see I am going all the way to Halifax! First time for me out in the Atlantic provinces!
