Daffodil Color with Me Tutorial

Daffodil Color with Me Tutorial

I get asked a lot what I use to color with. I am sharing my technique on the new release digistamp from Vera Lane Studio Daffodil. She is such a beautiful and easy image to color!

Supplies Used:

  • Inktense Pencils
  • Alcohol Markers
  • Waterbrush
  • White Posca Fine Paint Pen

Color flower petals in your choice of yellow. I am using Spectrum Noir Daffodil.

Color face and hands with skin tone color. I used Ohuhu 26.

Outline face with a slightly darker skin tone. I used ShinHanart Touch in YR29 Barely Beige. Color over the outlines with the lighter skin tone marker again to blend.

Color dress with a green. I used Spectrum Noir Willow.

Color the stamen, eyes and stripes on leggings with a peachy color. I used Spectrum Noir Portrait Pink.

These are the alcohol markers and colors I used.

Time to add some definition! Use Beech Green Inktense pencil to outline dress and under chin. Use the waterbrush to paint/blend the outline.

Add some Sicilian Yellow under the frill of the flower, down petals and at base of flower as shown above.

Next up, Scarlett Pink, add a tiny bit to the end of petals around the frill and to the left of the eye color.

Use waterbrush to blend colors.

Add a lil bit of Cherry Inktense to the cheeks. Use waterbrush to blend.

Inktense colors and waterbrush.

Trim digistamp, add white highlights and adhere to your background with pop dots! Let me know if you would like a video on how I made the background. I have added an additional piece I created with the same basic process with Daffodil in my art journal.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post! Come join us over on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group.
