Greetings, fellow crafters!  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky FingersThis weekend is Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S., and the unofficial start of summer.  What could be more perfect than featuring this happy summertime image from Lacy Sunshine artist, Heather Valentin? 

Today, I'm featuring Eleanor & Pickles Digging Clams....

I'll talk you through the process of how I colored this, starting with skin:

I used the lightest skin tones behind the glasses, so it would look different there -- E000 & E00.  
The rest of the skin tones are: E00, E21, E34 Lips - R21, R22 blush - R12

Eyes - BV000, BV02, BV04

Hair - YR24, Y21, E50

Pail - YR12, YR14, YR18.  The pail wasn't bright enough, so I added YR02

Here are Eleanor & Pickles Digging Clams, made into a card  -



I cut the card base out on my Silhouette Cameo, with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The puffy sentiment and sun are from October Afternoon.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella.  The Kraft paper is from Close To My Heart.

Emilio Boo Oink Oinker

Happy Sunday my Lacy friends!  It is my turn to post today and I have Emiloo Boo Oink Oinker to share with you today!  When I was coloring this little cutie I kept thinking of my daughter Heather, she loves little pigs and in my head I kept reciting " this little piggy went to market....this little piggy stayed home!"  
When coloring, I used both my SN and Copics...unfortunately I do not have good combos for pink in my Copics.  

Have a happy Emiloo Boo kind of day!
Hugs Jane

Rory Cherry Pickin

Hi Everyone, Anet here.

Today I want to share my colouring
of the basket with you.

I used Heather's


Here is my colouring
of the basket in the
following steps


First I coloured the whole basket with my lightest Copic Sketch Marker.  I always find that my colour combination blend easier.


Secondly I added my cast shadows with my darkest Copic Marker.


To blend the Brown Copic Marker Combination I start blending the previous darkest marker colour with my second darkest marker and ended with my lightest marker.


I went back for a second time with my darkest Copic Marker and end with my lightest marker.  I added a touch of Y11 and my own basket detail with my darkest marker.

My finished coloured

Tori - Dare to be Different

Greetings, fellow colorists.  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  Today, I have the wonderful Tori - Dare to be Different to share with you, by the always talented Heather Valentin!



Here's a coloring tutorial on how I got that wild hair, using Copic markers!

I'll start with her skin tones: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21
There's a bit of R20 on her cheeks, and R21 & R22 on her lips...

Now, for the wild hair!  I started with my darkest color first - B99:

Then, I added B93, and RV 29


Next, V04 and RV25 are added.

 The last 2 colors I added were C01, and RV21.  

I decided she needed a bright outfit, too.  I used:
Gloves -- YG11, YG13, YG17
Sweater -- R11, RV32, RV34, E04, brightened with RV21 & RV23
Jacket/pants -- YR14, YR18, E15, E18
stripes -- YG11, YG15, YG17
Shoes -- B21, B23, B26, B28, YG11, YG13, YG17
Bricks -- E50, E31, E33, E34



All that's left is the skateboard and letters.  Better make it colorful!
Skateboard -- B00, B01, B04, B06
Heart -- R20, R22, R27, R29
Wings -- Y04
Wheels -- Y06, Y08, Y28
Letters -- FYG2, FYG1, FY1, FYR1


And, here is Tori - Dare to be Different  made into a card --
