Tutorial: how to color a tree!

Hi everyone, 

Today it's me to share with you a little tutorial for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps
I took step by step pictures from how I color a tree.
For this example I've used a stamp from the adorable "A sunshiney day!" stampset by Cheryl.
Here we go!

Step 1:
Draw some structure in the tree with your lightest color (E31).
Nature is not perfect, so it doesn't matter how you draw them.
Squiggly lines are the most beautiful ones.
Don't worry about the mistakes, you won't see them at the end!

 Step 2:
When you're happy with it, you can redraw the lines with your "real" color (E37)

Color with your E35 marker next to your lines, leave enough white space for the others!

Step 4:
Color with your E33 marker next to the one before, leave a little white space.

Step 5:
Fill in  your white spots with the E31 marker.

Step 6:
Now we have to darken it up! I really like to use the E29 or the E59 for this part. 
Go again over your first lines.

Step 7:
Blend the last color out with the E35.

Step 8:
Now it's time for some shadows. Use your E35 and E33 for the shadows on the outsides of the tree. Don't forget the schadows under the arms/hands.

Step 9:
For the finishing touch, blend the spots who are too light or have "lines" of your previous markers.

Step 10:
Your tree is ready!!!

Hope you've had something about this.
We would love to see your colored images and cards with trees, don't forget to share them!

Happy Kraftin'!

Hallo iedereen,

Vandaag is het weer mijn beurt op het Colourstock blog  een kaartje te laten zien met de Copic markers. Ga gerust eens kijken op het blog en wordt meteen volger! Zo mis je niets over Copic markers en PanPastels!

Ik vind het altijd leuk om je afbeelding proberen vorm te geven met je Copic markers door je schaduwen aan te brengen op de juiste plaats. Deze digitale stempel van Hannah Lynn vond ik er ideaal voor!
Ik hou van de dikke zwarte lijnen.

Ik heb eerst gezorgd voor mijn schaduwen onder het haar en aan de omtrek van het gezicht.
Daarna kan je gaan bepalen waar en hoe je een neus creëert en welke delen donkerder moeten.

Vandaag wil ik jullie eens tonen hoe je het wangenrood mooi kan laten overlopen in de huidskleur zodat je geen "bollen" krijgt.

Op de volgende foto kan je zien hoe ik met de R20 een basis gelegd heb en het midden heb ik aangestipt met de R22. Daarna weer geblend met de R20.
Nu kan je zien dat de R20 niet mooi overgaat in de huidskleur.

Om een mooie overgang te krijgen kan je de randjes van de blush blenden met het lichtste huidskleur dat je op die plaats hebt gebruikt. In dit geval dus de E000.

En de lippen heb ik zo gedaan:
De onderlip vangt het meeste lip en met een goeie lipglos wordt het licht weerkaatst. Dat probeer ik hier ook te doen.
De bovenste lip enkel onderaan accentueren met het donkerste kleur (R35 in dit geval), bij de onderlip zorg je dat je genoeg wit over laat in het midden.

Uitblenden met de R32

De vorige stappen herhalen totdat je een gewenst resultaat krijgt. Als je een stukje wit laat, krijgt dat een dieper effect (glans).

Dit werd dan mijn eindresultaat van mijn kleurwerk. De digitale stempel werd afgedrukt op 13cm hoogte en was een waar genot om te keuren! Ik hoop dat jullie ze mooi vinden!

Omdat het zo'n groot formaat is en omdat het kleurwerk best centraal mag staan, heb ik er een heel eenvoudig kaartje van gemaakt (13 cm breed, 14.5 cm lang)
Enkel nog een designpapiertje en een kantje toegevoegd, ook een tekst kon natuurlijk niet ontbreken.
Deze heb ik met poeder geëmbossed op perkamentpapier.

En ik heb weel een hele resem kleurtjes klaar voor jullie:






roze bloem:


blauw bandje:

en als laatste de achtergrondkleur:

Dat was dan mijn extra lange post voor jullie, tot de volgende!
