Release day is here! You can order the new Stamping Bella stamps and coordinating dies on the Stamping Bella website now. Before you hop over there though, stick with me for my Teeny Tiny Love card and Copic colouring video.
Teeny Tiny Love Card
The Teeny Tiny Townies are back to spell it out for us! So cute. Definitely LOVE the new release.
Today I’ve got TWO videos for you! One is my usual speed colouring video showing the colouring for Stamping Bella’s Gnome with Lantern. The second video is a Copic lantern glow tutorial, showing how I created the glow effect around the lantern. It’s easier than you might think!
Gnome with Lantern Card
This little fellow is one of my favourites from this year’s Holiday release at Stamping Bella.
There are a few approaches I like to take to colouring gnome beards, and I thought I would gather them together in a couple of videos. Today I’m sharing three ways to colour beards with Copic markers. Later this week I will be sharing a similar video with coloured pencils.
If gnomes aren’t your thing, this video will still be useful, because the techniques work for any fur or hair texture. The approaches I share are the same ones I use to colour yetis, polar bears, and other animal images, as well as hair and beards on other characters like Father Christmas!
Three Ways to Colour Beards with Copic Markers
Here’s a look at the end results. There’s a smooshy, dabbing approach, the defined look, and a natural hair texture. I show you how I coloured each, in real time, in the video below. The footage hasn’t been sped up, so you can get a good look at how I work, while listening to me waffle!
