Rory Anchors Away- Lacy Sunshine Showcase

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share my colouring 
of red and white combinations with you.

I used Heather's
She is just so adorable.

My finished Rory Anchors Away Card.

Image: Rory Anchors Away. Sentiment:  LOTV Sentiment Tags. Dies: Memory Box Chloe Stem. Poppystamps Small Tilda Swirl. MFT Butterflies and Let's Get Nautical. Marianne Designs Flower Set. Cheery Lynn Designs Tiny Fanciful Flourish.  I used Stickles on the Image and Dies. Designer Paper Michele R Designs Vintage Fall.

Here is my colouring
of red and white combinations
 in the following steps

First I colour the whole area which is going to be red with my lightest Red Copic Sketch Marker.


If you are not comfortable using Red Copic Markers, I suggest that you first colour your red areas of the Image before you colour your skin and hair.  The Red Copic Markers are such a beautiful red combination ... but dear oh dear it is not one of the forgiving colour combinations when you make a mistake.  

I think the Red Copic Markers should be known as ... HANDLE WITH CARE. LOL, but still I love colouring with the Red Copic Markers.

Secondly I used C5 in the shadow areas and thereafter my darkest Red Copic Marker.  I then use my second darkest Red Copic Marker and end with my lightest red marker to blend all the colours.


I went back with my darkest Red Copic Marker and then finish with my lightest red marker.  I always give myself enough time to colour Red.  I never stop in between colouring in order for the colours to blend well. Therefore I only took two photos of my colouring.

To colour my white combination.  I first use BV32 in the shadow area.

Secondly I blended that out with BV31 and then B60.

My finished coloured

Copic Colour Combo that I used 
to colour this beautiful 

Now it is all over to you.  Hope you enjoyed what I shared about the colouring of Rory Anchors Away red and white combination.
