Hey folks! Elaineabella here with another Marker Geek Monday post to kick off a week of colouring fun.
If you missed last week’s post, check it out – Marker Geek Monday #TheDailyMarker30Day Round Up with Videos and Colour Maps – lots of colouring inspiration and info within, and a handy link list of all the Marker Geek Monday posts so far!
I would also like to draw your attention to a recent post over on my own Marker Geek blog which you might find useful. Click through to check it out (after you’re done here of course 😉 ): Create Quick Easy Texture using Copic Colourless Blender. The post features Stamping Bella Hula Chick and includes a step by step guide and video demonstrating one of the texturing methods I discussed in my Marker Geek Monday Basic Fur Colouring with Copic Markers post.
Copic Colouring Easy Curly Hair Step by Step:
Today I’m sharing a step by step guide and video showing how I colour curly hair on stamps like our fabulous EDNA. There are also a number of Uptown Girls, Tiny Townies and Bellas that this approach would work for. It’s just a nice easy way to colour curly hair on your stamp images.

Copic Colour Map:
Here is a full Copic Colour Map for the Edna Needs a Martini colouring featured in the video. Remember that if you purchase Stamping Bella stamps you can obtain colour maps for the versions shown on the product packaging – go HERE to find out how to do that. Between those and the bonus colour maps featured here on the blog, you can build up a great library of colour combinations to try out with your own Copic collection.

I only have a few Copics so I can’t do it with those but I do have other markers that have shades of colors so I could try it with them. Thanks for the info! I didn’t know you had another blog until recently, I thought this was the only one. I’ll have to go on there too. Someday I will get more Copics and learn to use them correctly. I know they aren’t like your basic markers.
thanks for the tips!
Thanks so much for sharing! I just keep watching and learning! Love these videos and tips you are sharing! 🙂
