Hair Colouring Tutorial

I'm so excited!!!

Isn't that exciting??!!

If you head over to Splitcoast Stampers you can view a Colouring Hair tutorial with step by step instructions and a video! Below is a picture of the image (made into a card) that I used in the step by step instructions.

The stamp is a digi stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Amy (also available as a rubber stamp). The image is coloured using copic markers.

I've then used Our Daily Bread Designs Butterfly and Bugs Stamps and Dies to create the butterflies. The flowers and leaves were made using ODBD Birds and Nest Dies. The tag is diecut using ODBD Mini Tag Dies and stamped with ODBD Mini Tag Sentiments.

The image is printed on X-Press It blending card. Other papers I've used include ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection, Kaisercraft Fairytales and Bazzill heavyweight cardstock. Most layers are inked around the edge with Distress Ink Walnut Stain.

Lastly I've used liquid pearls (Cantelope and Rose Gold), Green Tara white 38 mm mesh and some chocolate coloured twine to finish off my card.

The hair colouring video tutorial is available on the Splitcoast Stampers site and will also be available on my youtube channel in a few days.

I have been colouring with Copic markers for about 3 years now and have learnt many different tips, tricks and techniques through different magazines, live and online (official and unofficial) classes. Thanks goes out to a few of these including Color Me Creative Classroom, Copic Australia (where I got my Copic Certification) and Kit and Clowder.

I also teach live Copic and Cardmaking Classes. If you live in the South West of Western Australia - check out my Classes page for more details.

Thanks for looking!
