MarkerPop Tip & Tricks - How to Color Folds

Hi everyone, I'm back again for the second post of the day.  Today is going to be a busy today here at the blog as I'm not done yet.  After you read this post be sure to come back later this morning for a post using and I Brake For Stamps image!  But, for now, onto my MarkerPop post for today.

Today I have a tip for you on how to color folds.  I love coloring folds.  I think they are so satisfying as you immediately see the results of shading and coloring those darks and lights so close to one another.  I know folds can be hard for us sometimes, so I have a few pictures to show you how I do it.  I always start with the dark part of the fold and work my way out from there.  I lay down a light layer of color first and then I go back over a second time to blend those colors they way I like.  Sometimes my markers are stubborn and I may have to use a few of my colors a third time, but that's when you have to be careful that you work lightly so your marker doesn't bleed to other parts of your image.  I always color a small part of my image at a time as I find it easier to blend the colors this way.  Today I am using the Saturated Canary Rubber Stamp Nevaeh as I think her skirt has the most fabulous folds to color.  The copic marker colors I used on her skirt are R59, R46, R43, RV21.

Here is what she looked like when I was completely finished coloring the image.

I played around a little with my colors on this one and combined some colors and shades I may not have tried in the past.  You can see this better when you look at my project below.

Other Materials Used:
Glossy Accents
Diamond Stickles
Wild Orchid Flowers
MS Frond Punch
Spellbinder's dies
EK Success large border punch

Well, that's it for me today.  I think I am going to soak up the sun a little today, I believe it is supposed to be gone by tomorrow!
Huge Hugs,
