This month I joined the Color Me Copic design team.
We are a friendly group of girls who love our copic's. We have challenges every 2 weeks to show off our copic skills and to learn from all the other great girls in the group.
As well as having great challenges with great prizes there are also some amazing classes to join. Not only are there classes to brush up your copic skills, but there are classes on prismacolor pencils, distress inks and colouring Magnolia images with your pens. I'm currently doing the copic class three and let me tell you they are amazing value for money. Not only do you get pdf's for each lesson but you also get LONG video tutorials showing you exactly how to master each technique. Suzanne is a great teacher and what she doesn't know about copic's just ain't worth knowing.
and so onto the reason why your here. I was asked the other week to make a quick door sign for a young boys room and for it to include an image. Here is what I came up with.
I began by stamping the image and then scanning it. I then imported it into the make the cut software for my cricut and traced it, then added it to the wording. I then just added a shadow layer.
I coloured my pirate by Nellie Snellen in with copics. I added gold sakura metallic pen to his sword, buckle and hat. I finished it off by adding white high light details with my gel pen.
The wording and shadow were cut out on my cricut. And there you have my quick and easy door sign.
Here are the colours I used to bring my pirate to life :
Hair - E35
Skin - E00,11,93 for cheeks
Top - B93, 95, 97
Pants - E40,41,43
Map - E51,53,55
Belt - E15,17
Shoes - W3, 5 , 7
Sword - C1, 3 5
