How to Create Fluffy Clouds using Copic Markers
What’s up my crafty peeps! I have a super fun card and Copic Marker tutorial using one of Craftin Desert Diva’s Digi Stamps. Today I’m going to show you How to Create Fluffy Clouds using Copic Markers.
This image was so much fun to color. I really didn’t even think of the color scheme, I literally just picked up and used whatever was on my desk. I love when random colors just thrown together look so good! Sometimes you just have to stop thinking so much and just create. I used my favorite technique for bears.. my spotted fur technique. I have a few different tutorials on coloring fur — Check them out!

The paper I printed my digi stamp on is Copic Xpress it blending card and I’ve fancied up my card using some heart wood veeners by Studio Calico. I’ve finally used these polaroid frames by Maggie Holmes. I still have so much stuff I really need to start getting out and adding it to my cards.
Start coloring the background with B0000, flicking away from your image and flicking towards your image from the edge of the paper. You want to create a streaky look leaving fluffy white areas as the clouds.
Then take your B000 and darken under the clouds and flicking out into the sky, creating a shadow.
Do the same with C00 and come up along the side of the clouds a little me. Be sure to flick unto the sky area as well so the shadow fades intot the sky.
Then repeat the step using B000 just adding a little more color onto to the page.
We will want to blend out the B000 so now redo the step with the B0000. Remember you want to flick these colors coming out from by the clouds and into the sky.
