Cupcake Girl

Not long ago, I found Belles 'n Whistles stamps, and I absolutely adore these sweet images.  I thought it would be fun to practise colouring them using Copic markers.  Here's my first try.  Not sure if I did ok, but it was so fun and relaxing to colour her.

Here's a closer look :

Here's the stamp set:

I've been colouring with copics for about a year, learning bits and pieces from youtube videos and books.  I just love stamping and colouring even though I can't draw nor paint. So, I'm still trying to improve and also slowly expand my collection of Copic markers.  For the first time, I'm gathering courage to join a copics challenge at Copics Creations.  I look forward to your comments on areas which I still need to work on and improve.

I don't see any flaws in the colouring - the whole image looks well toned. The cupcake looks delicious and the girl looks so very sweet.

Kary this is fabulous - love the way the black makes the colours 'pop'. The newsprint dp makes a wonderful foil to the image.

Hello dear Kary!

What a perfectly cute card this is! I love their images as well, but they are a challenge to color, 'cause of all the tiny details!!! Your coloring looks perfect though! Shades, details, everything!! Very nice!!

Hugs, Wendy
