M4M Multi-Liner Madness - Saturated Canary Image


Hi Blogging Friends,

It is my turn to share some inspiration for the current Mad for Markers' Challenge: Multi Liner Madness.  I coloured a new Saturated Canary Image that Sammi has in store here.  It is called Ice Cream and Pickles.  She is so cute! I have made this card for my friend who has just fallen pregnant doing IVF so I wanted to make her a special card to let her know how happy I am for her.  My friend has lovely dark hair, so I chose to colour her hair in black.

I used my Multi-Liner for adding criss-crosses on the ice cream cone and for tracing the cream on the layers between the ice-cream (as I didnt do a great job with the stamping of the image, which is so me, I can never stamp that well).  I dont know if it is supposed to be cream, but I decided it would be on this card!  I also used my Multi-Liner drawing a little border around the card in three places.  One good thing about a Multi-Liner is that it doesnt smudge when you use your Copics over the top.

The papers I used are Amy Tangerine Sketchbook and the Copics I coloured with are:

Pink: RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02
Aqua: BG49, BG15, BG23, BG10
Yellow: Y08, Y06, Y02
Orange: YR07, YR04, YR02
Green: YG67, YG63
Hair: 100, C9, C7
Skin: E21, E11, R20

Here is a close-up of the colouring...



I am clearing out some stamps so if you are keen on a bargain check them out here.  A few sets have sold, but there is still plenty more left.  

Nicholas is sitting up now.  Yay!!! Here are a few recent pics...

I didn't think that baby could get any cuter but he is! I love the little roly poly arms and he looks like such a happy little guy.
Your card... wow, that's some smokin' good colouring! The sheen to her hair, the highlighting on her shirt is pefect. And that glittery ice cream cone looks good enough to eat!
