A Fun Day of Coloring

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.
