Copic Coloring Video Tutorial

Lovin' my new toy....the cricut! I cut out this cute little paper bag using the cartridge my machine came with. I didn't get a chance to show this little Pure Innocence girl off at release time so I am giving her a little bit of extra love today.
This is Peek a Boo from My Favorite Things.
I thought it would be a fun little image for a movie surprise...I will load up the little box with my daughter's favorite movie treat and make it a "date night" for us!
I had this little felt flower already rolled and ready to go on my desk. How nice that it was the perfect color! It is the small flower from the Rolled Rose Duo in the Die-namics line at MFT. Love this die! I see it is out of stock right now (popular as it is) but check back soon as Kim does a great job at restocking quickly!
Here is a close shot of the copic coloring. Below is a video and in it I share the colors I used. I colored her skin and hair in under 10 minutes (for the benefit of youtube) and paper pieced the dress so this project takes no time at all!


Enjoy your day!

Oh Thank you! Your coloring tutorial was great. I live in a vast wasteland of stamp stores, so don't get the opportunity to take classes. Your bag project is just darling.
