Happy February, friends! It’s Sandy Allnock with another bit of coloring. I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I am!

This month I went back to my Copics…I’ve been wanting to make a floral garden, and this little Pure Innocence girl looked like the perfect stamp to try it out.

In the video I’ll show you some tips for “fixing” blotchy skin, too…watch the video below to see how I made that pretty flower garden!

When I color people, I often add a few stray hairs here and there to add just a little character to them. When using a middle brown for this little girl, it almost looks like shadows on her face, right? Cool accident! 🙂

The background is just so fun and forgiving! It takes a while to add enough color to it – and be sure to use enough. If your colors are too light, the colorless blender won’t achieve very much.

All this was colored on Smooth White Card Stock. The card base I used, by the way, is Pineapple Card Stock, with a layer of Black Licorice – all the supplies are below!

And by the way – I mentioned a few more Copic Watercolor videos – there’s one HERE and my first one is HERE. Thanks so much for joining me for this month’s Create in Color segment. See you again next month!
