CYCI#112 ~ Guest Designer ... "YOU'RE SUPER AWESOME" card using MFT You're Super stamps & dies

Hello~!  Thanks for stopping by.   I was invited to be a Guest Designer for the Can You Case It Sketch Challenge #112. I am also Guest Designing for TupeloDesignsLLC for two months and am excited to share this post.

I pulled out a super fun set by My Favorite Things called "You're Super" ~ and what a super set it is!

This post has a LOT of pictures ~ I wanted to show how I colored up the girl image with my Copic Markers.  I am no Copic expert, but do enjoy coloring with them.

I stamped the image using Memento Black Ink onto some #110 Neenah card stock.

........ here we go!

Color face and hands with E00. Feather in from sides of face using E11.  Blend colors using E00.  Color some circles on cheeks with R20. Smooth colors with E00.

Color some hair using YR23. Add some E99 over the YR23 *I noticed that I took the picture before coloring the hair on both sides. Then take the YR23 to color in the white areas and blend the colors.
*I used four colors of red on the cape, you could use three.  Color some R05, then R24, then R29 and lastly R59. then work backwards coloring the colors out a little more for each and then blending the colors.

Color some B21 in some areas of the dress.  Add a little B37. I then blended it with B34 

Leggings:  Coloring on in corners and inside leggings with B21. Add some B34 over it. Add some B37 over colors. then work backwards bringing the  area colored out more with each color.

Boots:  Color on some R05. **2nd and 3rd pics should be swapped around. Add some R29, then R59. Then work backwards to blend colors and fill area.
Boot tops:  Color some Y23 on sides of boot topper. Add Y28 over it, then use Y23 to blend colors across top.
After coloring up the image I die-cut her out. The die is solid so I first cut it of a piece of scrap paper, then laid the negative image (I cut a slit up to the opening to make it easier to remove once the die is laid in it) over my stamped image, fit the die in the space, carefully remove the scrap paper and used scotch tape to keep die in place while I die-cut it out.   *note I forgot to take the picture of the negative over the stamped image, but took the picture afterwards.
