Today over at Color Me Creative we are having a new challenge which is all about brunettes. This new challenge, #20, will run until June 24th!
As you all know I’m only starting out with learning Copics. I’m nearly at the end of my first Copic class and I’ve really enjoyed it. What I really like about colouring hair is that there are so many styles and colours that you can use too.
Here is my card…
I used the Card Positioning System sketch below and kept it all quite simple as you can see.
My most challenging area at the moment is skin, I seem to end up with faces that look like their foundation has gone all blotchy, like they’ve put it on with a trowel instead of a smooth finish lol. I WILL achieve a perfect skin at the end of it, I’m determined!
In fact I had coloured in my image and then decided to go back and add in more shading, only to go and mess up around her eyes ruining the whole image. I tried to cut out just her face and re-attach it, but it didn’t look right, so rather than do the image again I decided to get out my Spica pen, adding in a touch of eyeshadow, and ta da, card fixed. I love happy mistakes :o)
Don’t forget, each month EVERY CMC Challenge Entry for that month gets the chance to win a prize and we also pick a random winner! That winner will win a Gift Certificate to Oozak.com!
So we will have 1 Challenge Winner for EACH Challenge (prize listed below each challenge) AND 1 winner from all that month's challenges to win the Oozak Gift Certificate! Two ways to win, but you’ve got to be in it to win it ;o) Pop on over to the Color Me Creative blog now and join in on the fun!
I’d also like to tell you about a few updates to our DT. We now have a Senior DT and some new additions too…
