Spring Has Sprung

Spring is here and with the warmer weather come buds and flowers as the gardens start to bloom with colour!  Today's tutorial looks at pink Spring flowers and how different pink combinations can create different looks for your paper projects.

  • X-press It Blending Card
  • Copic Markers
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Power Poppy Springtime Love Stamp Set

Step 1 - Stamp image in Memento Ink onto X-press It Blending Card. Colour the rose in RV000.

Step 2 - Add the mid-tone colour of RV52

Step 3 - Add the darkest colour, RV55, where the shadows would be. With flowers, this usually occurs at the base of the petals or where the petals fold over and therefore block the light source.

Step 4 - Lightly blend the colours using the next lightest colour, leaving areas for highlights. Colour the rest of the image in preferred colours.

Step 5 - This image is coloured exactly the same except for the pink rose.  The colours for this flower are RV10, RV13, RV14

Step 6 - Once again, this image is coloured the same, except the rose is coloured with RV00, RV32, RV34

Step 7 - In this example, the rose is coloured with RV91, RV93, RV95.  The higher the first number is on your copic marker, the more desaturated (or grey) your colour becomes.

The other colours used for today's examples are -
Long Leaves - YG11, YG13, YG17, YG67
Rose Leaves - YG61, YG63, YG67, G99
Bluebells and Ribbon - B60, B63, B66

Hope today tickles you PINK!Pin It
