It is time for another fun challenge at
This time we want to see BUTTERFLIES on your project!
She is the cutest and probably my favorite from this collection.
I have coloured her with the new Distress Markers, on The Langton extra smooth Hot pressed paper, 300g.
Here are the colors I have used:
Skin: Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo
Dress: Weathered Wood, Walnut Stain and Black Soot
Hair: Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain
Shoes: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
I haven't gotten all the colors yet, so for the green I have used my Distress Reinkers (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint). Also her cheeks (mix of Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany) and some Faded Jeans on the bluebells. It is fine to mix both Markers and Inks.
I don't use these markers the same way as I color with copics, more the same way as I color with Distress Reinkers. I lay on the color bit by bit and blend it out with my painting brush (Synthetic 00 and 0), with a little water on, as they are water colors.
The papers I have used are from Pion Design, also the butterflies I have cut out are from Pion papers.
The one under is DooHickeys from Magnolia.
