Beautiful Butterfly

Hello All! Just thought I would nip onto blogger and share this. This isn't a complete project, but a coloured image. I'm not sure where this image will end up, but thought I would share it in it's current state! It has been a while since I had a play with my markers, so this was quite nice to do, as I wasn't making it specifically for something.
This butterfly is part of an Uniko Studio digital collection, called English Country Garden. I printed it on my normal colouring cardstock, and coloured it with Copic Markers. It is a beautiful line drawing, and I had great fun colouring it in! The joy of this butterfly was that I could print several so I could find the size that I wanted.

All the colours used to colour the butterfly are within the same colour range and tone. I used the following combinations in the sections of the butterfly:
Light : BV0000, BV000, BV00
Medium: BV11, BV01, BV00
Dark: BV23, BV13, BV11
Darkest: BV29, BV25, BV29

It was great fun colouring this, might attempt more tonal colouring in future! Just a reminder that Uniko Studio currently have a blog candy up for grabs, so if you liked the butterfly....!!

Thanks for visiting! K:-)
