Everyday Kids -- Cowgirl

Everyday Kids - Cheerleader

The first digi image I colored from the Everyday Kids series was this cheerleader.  Our school colors are orange and black and the local scrapbooking store had custom TIGERS paper.  So this was so easy to put together.  Plus, I have a new picture of my 6 year old granddaughter being the "Cheerleader" for the Christian Football team.  So, I have to scrap it as well.    This image is just one of the EVERYDAY KIDs series. It was so much fun to color with Copic Markers.   To see more information go to If you follow the blog, you will get a free digi image from ScrapItPlus.

I used the following:  I have decided to do the skin and hair first on all of my images.  If I make mistakes on those, I can start over.

Skin:  E000, E00, E11, R30
Orange:  YR02, 07
Black/Grey outfit:  N0,1,3.5
Hair:  Y21,23, YR23, E13, E27
Lips:  R21,22

Everyday Kids -- Baker

ScrapItPlus has introduced a new series of digi stamps called "Everyday Kids".  This one is called Everyday Kids-- Baker.  This blog is all about Copic Markers and coloring with Copic Markers.  It is about how to learn or improve your coloring with Copic Markers.  We aren't always "spot on" with our coloring-- we just try to be.

It was just so much fun coloring this image.  I will have to admit that portraying "white" as in the baker's outfit is not easy, but I did NOT do a very good job on this one.  To make white look white, you use greys -- C00, C0, C1 -- I just kept adding more and more greys.  I decided not to redo it, as I have many more to color.  So, I decided this outfit had been washed way too many times, and had turned grey.  So work with me, OK?

To buy this cute image, go to (e-store) ($2.99).  The image comes in three sizes, as do all of the  Everyday Kids -- approx, 4.5", 3.5" and 2.75".  So you have one for a scrapbooking page, a card, or a fun calendar or altered art.

Grey Dog and Denim

This card uses the image of a dog.  It's name is "Latte" (The name of my Maltese).  It has been colored grey.  You can see the YouTube video on how to color it here:


There were only two colors used, W2, and W5 -- both warm greys.  Warm greys are used when you want your grey to have a warm color -- more yellow, red, orange.  These greys are often used with animals, tree trunks, etc.  
The exception for the dog, is when you are coloring a white dog, in which you would use the cool greys, to make your whites pop out more.  (See YouTube video of coloring a white dog -- Latte image.
