Hey there, we have a clean and simple tutorial today from Seeka. She's used Copic markers to color the stamped flowers and butterfly images from the Hello Hollyhocks stamp set. Super simple. Super clean. And the card Seeka made ends up being super sweet too!
Hi there, it’s Seeka here and today I’m sharing an easy, clean and simple Copic-colored card using the beautiful Hollyhocks stamp set.
I started by using a black Copic-friendly ink to stamp the floral image and sweet butterfly onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. Then I got down to coloring. I used R30, R32, R35, and R37 to color the blooms, starting with a solid layer of the lightest color and then gradually adding in darker and darker shades to create a bit of depth. Then I used YG21, YG23, and YG25 for the leaves. For the butterfly I used B12 and BF2.
To create the shadows, I outlined both images with W4 and then blended it out with W2 and then blended out again with W0.
I stamped the sentiment in a black pigment ink and then trimmed the panel down to 4”x5.25” before backing it with foam tape and adhering it to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you so much for coming by today!
Seeka's clean and simple copic-colored hollyhock card is so nice and easy to make. It would be a good design to mass produce - you could say "Hello" to so many of your friends!
