Just Because -- for Coloring Without Boundaries

It's time for a new showcase at Coloring Without Boundaries. You'll see many wonderfully colored Lacy Sunshine creations if you visit the blog.  They are all drawn by the uber talented Heather Valentin.

Today, I had the joy of coloring up Mushi - Briar Whimsie:

I colored Mushi - Briar Whimsie with Copic markers.

Here's the colors I used, starting with skin:

I started out coloring all the skin first, using E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, R21, and R22

Next, I colored the hair:

I used V04, V12, BG05, & BG11.  This was a new color combination for me, but I liked how easily it blended together, and I'll certainly use it again.

The rest of the colors used are:

Eyes -- BG000, B12, B14
Wings  & Skirt-- V000, V01, B000, B01
Top -- BG11, BG32
Shorts and arms -- B41, B45
Belt and Stockings -- BV000, BV01, BV04
Mushrooms -- Y23, Y26, Y28, Y35, Y38

I cut out the colored image with a Die-namics cross stitched die.  The card base was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, using a file found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The flowers were purchased at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  All papers are from Close To My Heart, except the X Press It Blending Card.

Please check out the Coloring Without Boundaries blog for more inspiration and a challenge that starts today with this showcase.   Join the Coloring Without Boundaries Facebook Group and the Lacy Sunshine Color N Craft Facebook Group, too.

Heather Valentin has been publishing some incredible Adult Coloring Books.  You can find them all on Amazon!  Get shopping!
