Sparkle N Sprinkle May Showers w/ Copic Tutorials

Welcome back my followers,

Who is ready for SPRING already?? I know I sure am. With Spring comes flowers and growth. This new stamp set I am using today is called "May Showers" by Sparkle n Sprinkle. It is such a fun set to color.

Sparkle N Sprinkle Supplies Used:

Tonic Studios Deco Holly Rings Die Set

To create this card I started with a 6" card base. Using the Tonic Studio's Diamond Corner Dot & Drop Die for extra interest to the card base. I colored the beautiful "April Showers Promise stamp set choosing Yellow for the rain boots. Yellow is a tricky Copic color to work with so I did a step by step showing you each step with one rain boot so you can see how to get the shiny highlight in the boot.

Step 1: A light base color using Y11

Step 2: Using Y13 add color to the shadow area.

Step 3: Using Y17 continue to darken the shadows. This is your darkest marker so once added we will then use our markers in the opposite direction. (Dark to Light)

Step 4: Now with Y15 you will now begin "dragging the darker color towards the highlighted center.

Step 5: Using Y13 you will now again focus on dragging the last color towards the highlight in the center. Each time you do this you are blending the colors.

Looking at this photo above you can see where the lighter marker in each step has de saturated the over all color, and the boot looks kind of blotchy. To correct this you just add an extra layer of colors.

Step 6:  Using Y15 you will again add darker color to your shadow areas.

Step 7: Using your darkest marker add a little more depth where you are wanting your shadows.

Step 8: Stepping back down now go to your Y15 and again "drag" the darker towards the highlighted center.

Step 9: Lastly do a light blend using your lightest color (Y13) This will seamlessly blend your colors.

Here is a close up picture of the final coloring.

I hope you have enjoyed this little coloring tutorial as much as I have enjoyed creating it. Have an amazing day!
