Hi all. Today I'm sharing the tutorial I did for Copic Europe Blog, which is a technique known as underpainting - using greys and blues to create a base under subsequent layers of colour. The stamp set I'm using is Your Favourite Icecream from Create a Smile Stamps.
I stamped all the elements of the ice cream separately for dimension, but another option is to use masking paper and layer them as one piece. I used Perfect Copic Paper and Memento black ink.
For the underpainting I started with C1 to mark out where I wanted to lay the shadow
I applied some C3 and then B41 to create my darker areas.
Once the underpainting is done I coloured the ice cream red, yellow and brown.
For the cone I used E53, E55 and E21.
When I had my marker work done I used pencils to add fine detail and highlights.
On the red layer I used a chalk marker to add white sprinkles.
I popped the icecream up on foam tape on the front of the card and added a sentiment.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you are inspired to colour something today.
