Hi everyone!  It's Audrey from the Inkettes DT here with you today.  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  My day started with a couple dr. trips for my oldest daughter, so I am running a bit behind, but I am here now:)

Anyway, I LOVE my Copics, but I am definitely not very artistic beyond being able to stay with in the lines when I color.  However, in the course of coloring a huge variety of stamped images, I realized that sometimes an image needs some sort of scenery added to it and I don't have many chair or couch type stamps.  So, I started experimenting with my Copics and have created several different types of scenes by adding walls, grass, sidewalk or dirt ground.

Today, I have chosen to work with INKY IMPRESSIONS SHOP image "Winter Fashion Marlee."  I colored her with my Copics as usual.   For her fur trim, I used one of the lightest blues and my Copic blender.

Now, she looks fine and I could have used her as is, but I decided she looks like she is sitting on something and today, it's a brick wall.  So, I started with my darkest color N6 in this case, and made the top of the wall.

Next, I added N4 and N2 to finish out the wall.  I always start darkest and go lighter since the part she would be sitting on would be the darkest.  I do added shadows where her legs are for reflection.

Finally, I take the broad end of my Copic blender and I make "bricks" and voila, there she is, sitting on a wall, ready to be added to any of your projects.  Hope you like it!!


  1. Beautiful! Love the way you coloured her in and the brickwork is brilliant! xx

  2. Awesome job, Audrey! Thanks so much for sharing your technique with us.

  3. I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills as neatly as with the structure on your weblog. Is that this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is uncommon to see a great weblog like this one these days..
