Copic Marker is proud to support our nation’s deployed heroes through Operation Write Home®. This organization has sent over one million cards overseas, allowing our service members to keep in touch with their loved ones while they’re away.
We want to invite you to join in this amazing service and send in your beautiful cards to be used by our nation’s heroes. Visit Operation Write Home for the details.
Today we’re happy to be a part of the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop! This card, based on OWH Sketch #109, was designed by Copic Design Team Member Sherrie Siemens. View her tutorial below, and click the banner at the bottom of the post to start hopping!
Step 1: Stamp the “Soldier Girl” image from My Favorite Things, due for release June 5th, onto X-Press It Blending Card . Stamp another image on a Post-it note.
Step 2: Color the skin areas on the image. Don’t forget those strong cast shadows that land on her face from her hat. There are also cast shadows on her legs and arms from her uniform. Use BV20 sparingly to sink the very deepest of shadows on the skin.
Step 3: Color the main clothing. I love the E80 series for its green tone in the earth color family. My light source is in the upper right so I have a large cast shadow falling on her uniform from her head. I did not leave any area of her uniform white because I did not want to give the illusion of shininess.
