Kristii loves working with our new Sassy Girl stamp set. She is perfect for all occasion cards and come with 3 different sentiments. You might have your own "sassy" sentiment that you might want to include... just sayin' this girl is open to all kinds of attitude.
Kristii is a master with her Copic markers. Here are the markers that she used to color in our beautiful girl:
R81, R83, R85, Y17, Y32, E11, E33, E50, 100, 0
Not familiar with Copic Markers? These are alcohol based dye ink markers that allow for beautiful blending of colors and allow the artist to incorporate shading and highlighting for a realistic look. Lots of tutorials online and a quick google search of Copic Marker Tutorial will give you lots of options.
If you look closely, Kristii did a base color on our Sassy Girl's dress and then added shading in with a slightly darker pink color along the edge and anywhere that a fold might occur. Same process with the skin shading. Because of the alcohol in these markers, the blending of the two colors makes a smooth color transition.
One thing to remember when using Copics is the type of ink that you will use to stamp your image (the black or brown outline). Tsukineko Memento or Brilliance Ink, Ranger Distress Inks, A Muse Dye, or Stewart Superior Palette Noire all are brands of ink that work well with Copic Markers. Be sure to allow the image to dry completely before starting the coloring process.
Highly recommend that you do a few tutorials and get a little base knowledge of how Copics work before purchasing (they are a bit pricey). But I promise you'll absolutely love coloring once you learn how!
