Blog break

Hi everyone,

Well, it´s time for me to thank you all for a great time in blogland and to say goodbye (at least for a while), I´m overwhelmed with two jobs at the moment and I just don´t find any time or energy to craft =(

I´m sorry I haven´t visiting some of my favorite blogs as much as I would normally do.
I have steped down from the design team at Crafty Sentiments Challenge blog and I would like to thank Suzette for letting me be such a bad DT! Lol!

I had a request for a tutorial about colouring skin and cloths with copics and I promise I will post it as soon as I can ;)

Hugs,
Sara

Hair tutorial with Copics (PICTURE HEAVY!)


Hi everyone!
I had some request about a hair tutorial so today I will show you my way of colouring hair step by step.

Here´s an image I drew with a black pencil, sorry about the poor quality of it.. I don´t have the technology to make it into a clean digi  ;p
You can use this image as you want.

 Copics needed: E50, E53, E57, E49.
The only thing to practice is THIN LINES!!!

First color a SMALL part of the hair with E50.

Then make quick light-handed strokes with E57 following the shape of the hair.
Don´t try to make the lines even! Some are long, some are short!

Narrow ONLY THE TIP of the darker lines with E53 (don´t try to blend anything just continue the line to make it narrower and longer)

New strokes with E49...  I made them too thick here =p try to be more light-handed ;)

Soften the tip of the dark strockes with E57. (Don´t worry if it doesn´t look good now, you can always get back to it in the end)

Great! Let´s colour another part of the hair.
Same thing, start with E50 and make some strokes with E57 by following the shape of the hair.

Continue narrowing the tip of the lines with E53.

E49

And soften the dark lines with E57 and the tips with E53 if needed.

Now another area =)
E50 and E57 following the shape of the hair... so toward the ponytail!

Then the same lines with E49

And soften with E57.

New area!
E50 and E57 following the shape of the hair toward the ponytail.

E49

Soften with E57

And soften ONLY the tip of the line with E53

Now another area!
First E50 then strockes with E57 following the shape.

E49

Soften with E57 and E53...

You can play with the strokes until you are happy with it!
So more E49 and E57 ;))

The ponytail!
Same pattern... E50 and E57.

E49

Soften with E57 and then only the tips with E53

Almost finished!
The rest of the ponytails..

That´s it!

Hope this helped =)

Crafty Sentiments Designs Challenge

Hi everyone!

After I failed my entrance exams I made the decision to stop being on any DT for this year and concentrate on next year´s exams...but of course I couldn´t resist when Suzette the owner of Crafty Sentiments Designs asked me if I would like to join their team...I just love those cute images! So I promised I could make one card a month that way I would still have time to study, hopefully harder than last year ;p

So here is my card for this week´s Crafty sentiments Designs Challenge with the theme of Bright Colors! 
This fun stamp is called Butterflies and flowers. I added some glitter on the butterflies, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the paper is Basic Grey´s Kioshi pad.

Here are the Copics I´ve used:
Violet: BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08
Pink: V000, R81, R85, E79

Hi everyone!
Here´s a card I´ve made using two adorable stamps from Crafty Sentiments Designs: Primrose Garden Flowers and Roses&Tulips.
After my exams I did lose a bit of my mojo and the colouring took me forever so don´t look too close ;)
Also I decided to add some stitching around the image after I already put my card together so I ended up with a sealed card that can´t be opened!!!! What´s wrong with me? =D

.......Oh the shame!
