The challenge over at Flourishes this week is hosted by my pal Silke and her challenge was to pick your favorite Flourishes set to use. To this I say... Silke, Are you NUTS? One favorite set?? I have way too many! So I picked a set that I love and had not inked up in awhile. I chose to use the Berry Sweet set.
I stepped out my coloring in pictures below...
I break the Copic rules all over the place on this one!
B0000 in the background for a little light blue glow.
Blender pen to soften the edges of the blue.
V99 is the start of color on the berries.
Continued with R56 on the berries.
I wanted to add a small amount of a blue undertone in the berries.
Another layer of R56.
I used Y17 to lift darker color and add in a subtle green tint.
One more layer of the R56 to finish the berries.
The first color on the leaves is G46.
I added more blue around the image... I wanted it a bit darker.
G43 to finish the leaves.
E23 on the stem. Y32 and Y28 in the flowers, using the 0 Blender to bleed the color to the edges.
