Bee Sparkly and Copic Tutorial

Here is my Design Team card for this fortnights challenge at Bee Crafty which is 'Add some sparkle'. You'll need to use a digi image somewhere too, but it doesn't have to be a Bee Crafty one. The prize is a Bee Crafty download. Have a look at the fab creations by the Design Team.



Sorry about my too bright pic, I didn't have time to take another one, lucky I've got 10 minutes to post this!



I'm entering this for these challenges:
I used the Fluffy Bunny Christmas image as I though the little fella sorting the baubles was so cute. I've shaded him with Copics and added loads of Glamour Dust for sparkle, although it was so dark when I took the photos. The sketch is one of my own (shock - horror!) and I used purple glittered card and ribbon too. Finally a metal snowflake charm, hanging off a sparkly brad.

And here's how I shaded Fluffy Bunny, using Copic Ciaos C1, C3, C5 and C7 for the greys. I decided the light was shining from the left and popped the darkest shade on first. Each time I add a lighter colour, I used circular motions with the pens to blend them in. I use the reverse side of the white linen card from The Paper Mill Shop as it's nice and absorbent.




Once the three darker greys are done, I coloured over the whole lot with the lightest grey (C1). Typically it ran out whilst I was doing this so not quite the effect I wanted to show you! Finally shades the baubles and ribbon in purples and then I went around the edge of the image with the lightest shade of purple I have. I think you can click on the photos to see a close up.



Well Blake seems to be responding well to the antibiotics, although he had a terrible night. We're all a bit tired so I apologise for my lack of comments this weekend. I will try and catch up over the next few days. Thanks for all your get well wishes for him.

And Lynn - so sorry I missed you this morning, I'd just nipped out - sorry, sorry, sorry and thanks for bringing your scrummy cards round.

I have a fabulous collection so far for SANDs, thank you soooo much, Please check my first post to join in my charity candy - you have ages yet and the candy is yummy.
