I so love coloring with my Copics, but there are times where I just need a bit more depth. So, I have started using my Polychromos Colored Pencils to add that extra bit of shading. They make a huge difference. They are so smooth and just give the little extra “oomph” to make your image POP.
Today I am using the awesome Dancing with Daffodils Digital Stamp Set.
After coloring part of the flower pink using Copic markers, I added a bit of brown pencil for depth, adding the shading gently go into the crevices. Start by laying a light layer of brown. You can always go back and add more. I like to add it a little at a time to watch whatever I am coloring come to life.
I was having so much fun playing with this image that I just had to do it twice. This time, I colored the flowers in shades of yellow. I so love daffodils! I have tons of them in my flower beds in all different colors.
After coloring up the flowers in shades of yellow, I used a medium gray pencil to shade in the lines. I thought the gray added a nice depth to the yellow. Again, just add a little shading at a time.
So next time you are hoping to add a little bit more dimension to your Copic colored images, don't forget to reach for your colored pencils for that extra effect!
Thank you so much for joining me today! I hope this little tip inspires you in your own crafting space!
Have a wonderful week,
