Last Saturday I had the opportunity to take a couple of Copic coloring classes from a very talented lady. Wendy is the owner of Sugar Pea Designs and a fantastic colorist. Her stamps have wonderful images and are high quality. I can speak with authority as I own a LOT of Sugar Pea stamps. First, we colored the main image from Seaside Wishes.
Ok, she is my fav. Just how I would like to look on the beach. Long flowing hair, a thin body, cute bare toes. You get the idea. Here is my coloring attempt.
I took advantage of Wendy's help and tips using the Copic markers. It can be tricky figuring out all the blending techniques. As Wendy would say, "practice, practice, practice".
I especially like her hair and face. I added some sparkle to her hair and shells with a clear Wink of Stella pen to make them stand out a little.
The second class used a Sugar Pea Designs stamp called Bountiful Blessings.
Both of these stamps are illustrated with the same girl image. Too, too adorable.
OMG! I love her! Her freckled face and worn overalls just melt my heart.
By the way, a very secret technique is used to make her overalls look used. So fun!
So, I just had to show off a little because I'm happy with the results of my coloring. I'm ready to pull out all my Sugar Pea Design stamps and color, color, color. Thanks for taking a look today.
