Colouring Pleats - A Video Tutorial


Today I would like to share with you a video that I have made showing how I colour pleats / folds in clothing.

Here is the card I made using the image from my video:

I used the following Copic Markers to colour the image:

Skin: E0000, E00, E21 R20
Hair: E50, E31, E37
Shoes: E40, E43, E44
Clothes and Balloon: B0000, B000, B00, B02 and Colourless Blender
(I used the same colours for the smaller image on the insert)

Here's a close up of the finished image:

Items used to create card: 

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with Balloon (Standard Size and Mini)
Papers and Card: From my stash
Tools: Nesties Large Ovals, Nellies Multriframe Hearts and various Magnolia Doo Hickeys
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain
