Hello! I’m over the moon excited to be a guest designer here over at The Ton blog. First, I’d like to thank Effie for inviting me, it’s really been an honor for me. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
I had so many ideas while I was going through the stamps to use for this guest post and for this first post, I decided to go for this beautiful set called Loose Peonies. I really fell in love for this Peony stamp set since it is so realistic. Unfortunately, the spring still awaits to come here in Finland so I can only dream of these beautiful blooms. While waiting the summer to come, I had fun colouring these dreamful blooms. I used my go-to-coloring method – copic markers combined with coloured pencils. For the sentiment, I used a stamp from The Ton’s It’s Cray Cray set.
I started by stamping the flowers and the leaves with light pink ink. Any light ink will quite well do, I chose to use light pink since I thought the lightest parts would be on the flower. Then I first laid the copic layers and added details with pencils. If you want to use the same colours as I used, I list the colors below.
Copic Markers: G20 – G43 – RV0000 – RV000 – V000 – V01
Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils: Ivory (103), Light Magenta (119), Pink Madder Lake (129), White (720), Earth Green Yellowish (168), Earth Green (172), Juniper Green (165), Warm Gray (270).
Hope you like what I created for this first guest post. Please, stay tuned for the two more to come!
Have a wonderful day!
