You Make The World

Friday, April 23, 2010

I'm happy to say that everyones comments about the Stampscapes candle were very helpfull. Now that I know what is of interest to you my readers, I will not hesitate to post more off beat projects.

Thank you for all of your comments, it make my effort worth while.

And now for todays post.

"You Make The World"

Todays image is from "Stampavie" the stamp is called "Bernadette admiring the spring flowers". It's a really cute stamp, but has a lot of detail coloring to do.

Copic Tidbit:
When I color images that have very small areas, I tend to go with two colors in the family group. Also I don't color in circles. What I do is lay down the light color first, then the darker color. With the lightest color I pull the darker color out. This keeps the ink from going out side the image line. Try it, it works for me and I get, what is to me, an acceptable blend.

I added some Crystal Lacquer to the watering can and some Spica colors to other areas. The paper for the image was "Curious Cryogen", I love this paper.

Now get ready for this, because I used a lot of different markers on this one. Here are the colors I used;

Skin; E000, E00, E01, R11
Blouse; Y11, Y15, Y17
Hair; Y11, Y21, E97, E99
Pants; E31, E35, B05, R24, R27
Water Can; C0, C3, C5
Leaves; YG07
Foreground; YG01, YG05

That's a lot of colors, plus I used random colors for the flowers.

I hope you enjoy my effort for the day. Your comments are always welcome.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

Bob L.

    Bob, I really enjoyed the variety you have posted right now. I have not visited any blogs lately.

    The stampscape on the candle is great. I have that stamp along with maybe 50 more stampscapes, so it was good to see another way to use them.

    The robin card is outstanding! Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

    This is beautiful bob. I do the same type of technique too within smaller areas. It seems to look "cleaner" to me too. TFS!!

    Bob, I love this card. Your coloring as usual is fantastic. You are so talented. And I thought that I was the only one using on 2 colors and blending that way. I just found it easier for me than trying to blend 3 or 4 colors. Can't wait to find a copics class. I have just been coloring by the seat of my pants.

    Beautiful card! The coloring is awesome and I also love the combination of colors. Also thanks for your comment. I have actually been thinking of visiting the South Carolina Zoo. I saw some pictures my friend took there and it seems as though you get closer to the animals there that you can at zoo Atlanta.

    This is a beautiful card and your coloring is super great! I appreciate all the comments and tips from you in both groups - Magnolia-icious and copic (its newer to me so I don't quite remember the name) I love your work and you really do inspire me. Thanks, Barb F
