Day 2 of 3:  Coloring Virtuoso

Print

Welcome back to day 2 of my 2017 Card Design Superstar reveal!  Today’s theme showcases coloring of any medium.  My medium of choice has always been Copics – but I’ve never done a one layer card covered in Copics before.  I had to look to Sandy Allnock for inspiration here because she’s amazing with her one layer cards using Copics.

I stamped the images using the Farm Friends stamp set.  I even did mirror-image stamping with the lamb/sheep on the right.  I hand-drew the barn on the left but forgot to snap a photo before I colored it.  as you can see….it started as a blank sheet of white paper.  I was so nervous coloring this!

You guys…I’m pretty darn proud of the barn I drew.  I didn’t know what to put in the window there so i decided to put a lamp – that’s appropriate in a barn right? 😉

So much green….and I only used 2 Copic colors to achieve the look above.  To give it some contrast, I added a gravel road and a little bit of sky.  The clouds are created using the colorless marker.

The tractor even has glossy accents over the glass – but the photo doesn’t show it too well.  After coloring all the images, I added some white accents with a white Gelly Roll pen.  There you have it – a one-layer, full Copic-colored card.  I hope you like it!  I tried to be really adventurous with it – had to go over it several times to even out the green pasture and hill.

Please come back tomorrow to see my third and final card – the theme is “Innovation Master.”  Sounds so intimidating but I’m excited to share what I’ve spent so much time working on over the past week.   Thanks for stopping by!

XOXO,
