Ruff Day?

Hello again! As promised, I’m back today coloring cute Kiki digi-image from Tiddly Inks, using tips from Copic’s Coloring Cats & Dogs with Copic Markers.

Isn’t Kiki cute?  (She’s also FREE!)  The sentiment is from Paper SmoochesPaws for a Cause and the Stitched Frame is from Taylored Expressions.

Coloring Cats & Dogs with Copic Markers focuses on many different aspects from basic smooth coloring to creating texture, adding shadows, coloring different lengths of fur, breeds and more.

To color Kiki, I first printed her onto X-Press It Blending Card. I began with a base of E42 then added the next darker shade of E44, using long feather strokes to apply the color. Next I began building shadow using W5, finishing with W7. The highlighted areas of white were left uncolored.

I’ll be back soon with another card featuring the other half of the book – a cat.  :)

Thanks so much for visiting!
