What’s Up Buttercup?

Hi everyone! I so very much enjoyed coloring Power Poppy‘s Countryside Bouquet digital stamp (here), I decided to try another. (I want to color more flowers.) This time I used Cuppa Buttercup.

I also returned to Copic’s Coloring Foundations – Coloring Flowers with Copic Markers for coloring inspiration.

I used the buttery yellow marker combination shown below as well as the suggested (YG) greens for the leaves.

One thing I learned from the book today is that shadow can be added to leaves using a V05 marker. Layering V05 over the green creates a deeper green shadow, not violet at all. I thought that was interesting. I never would have thought to try that on my own.

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, V05, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y02, Y08, YG17, YG41, YG45, YR14

To create the bluish/gray cup, I lightly colored with BG70 and BG10 then warmed the color by layering W00 and W1 over top.

You can find all sorts of inspiration, education, downloadable color charts, free line art and more on the Copic website. Explore! :)

Thanks  for stopping by!
