The Copic Challenge this time is to color brunette hair. I had never done this before so this was an inviting challenge to work on as it is more learning for me.
Here is the link to the Copics Challenge.
It helped me a lot to watch videos from Suzanne on hair coloring. I am sure I have more to learn....but I am quite happy with the results for a first timer. Here is a link to Suzanne's blog. You can see lot of reference material and videos on her right nav.
For the image itself, I used the Digital stamp of Swinging Gretchen from Sweet and Sassy Stamps. You can see their website here. I wanted to use the larger image to see more of my coloring, hence went with a 5x7 card size.
Here is my card,
Here are the set of colors I used for the Hair..I did not have some of the browns that Suzanne had used..so I improvised.
Here are the colors I used for Skin and Dress. I highlighted the sash and band on the dress with Copic Spica pen and also colored the shoe with Copic Spica pen.
