watercolor backgrounds (1)

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing with you a fun little tutorial :) I have taken Fairy Abigail by CC Designs and coloured her up with my copics, and then have done a nice soft watercolour background around her using paints. This technique is really difficult to do with copics as you generally get quite a hard line.

I have used Copics to colour her up and Sennelier L'Aquarelle's to do the background. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20

Hair: E50, E53, E43, E44

Dress/Wings: G00, BG13(w), BG49 (w), BG78 (w), Y11, Y15(w), Y17, E15, E18 

Background: Sennelier L'Aquarelle (I have the 14 pack - these allow you to add more colour with less layers of ink which is what you need for copic card)
899 Forest Green, 805 Phtalo Green Light, 917 Dioxazine Purple, 501 Lemon Yellow
