Marker Geek Monday: Oddball Snowman Card – Reminder on Colouring White

Hey folks! It’s me, Elaineabella, here with another does of Marker Geek Monday inspiration for you.

This week I’ve switched things up and gone for a Christmas card featuring the new ODDBALL SNOWMAN stamp. I thought this would also be a great time to remind you of some tips for colouring white!

Here’s my card, coloured with Copic markers and finished off with some word stickers.

Stamp Used: Stamping Bella Oddball Snowman

As you can see, I added some fairly dark shadow areas on my snowman and the ground around him, but they still appear “white”. Don’t be afraid to play with your markers/pencils/whatever your preferred medium, and try adding darker shadows to white objects, especially if the rest of your image has strong colours.

Copic Colours Used

Body/Ground: B0000,BV20,BV23
Nose: YR16,YR27,E47
Hat/Buttons: BV25,BV29,100
Bell: Y15,Y26,E87
Tree: G07,G19,BG99
Scarf/Gloves: R35,R37,R89,G99
