First, I inked my image with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.
I used Cut N' Dry Nibs by Ranger to apply the distress ink to my butterfly.
I simply used the nib to pick up color directly from the ink pad.
I then applied the ink to the image in the desired spots. I used Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick to add shading to the butterfly after coloring it with a Copic combo of YG04, YG07, YG09 and Y00. The mix of colors orange, yellow and red really brought the image to life. I love the intensity of this coloring technique.
Sorry the photo only shows me adding the Black Soot. I must have accidentally deleted the other photos I had. I thought I had backed them up, but, sadly, I did not :( In a way I am glad it happened this way because it reminded me that I needed to back up my photos :) Any suggestions for a good online storage site? I am looking to back up my back up ;)
Hope you have an amazing weekend!
