Happy Australia Day!

Hi there- its Sascha from Copic HQ! There are a lot of sweet tooth's working in our office (I'm one of them!!) and when I saw some yellow and green Liquorice in my local supermarket I felt instantly inspired! I decided to make an Australia Day themed lolly bag, made using my favourite Australian Themed La-La Land Craft's Stamp- Koala Marci.

I coloured my image in with shades of yellow and green  that matched the liquorice. I used a few different techniques to add a bit of life to it. I used my Colourless Blender to add some texture to Marci's koala hat. I just dripped some of my Copic Colourless Blender onto a piece of textured towel, then lightly pressed it onto the areas I wanted to lighten. Click here for a great tutorial on doing this technique. I also used the feather blending technique to colour Marci's tutu. To learn more about this technique, click here! To create they green and gold string to match my image, I simply coloured some plain string in with coordinating colours.

I used the following Copic Colours:
Hair- E00, Y21, Y00
Skin- YR000, YR00
Koala Hat- C1, C3, C5
T-shirt- C1, C3, C5
Tutu- YG11, YG07,Y21, Y02
Ugg Boots- E31, E33, Y21
String- YG07, Y06

Happy Australia Day from everyone at Copic Oz!!Pin It
