Coloring using the Water Collection

Flourishes is now carrying Copic markers, and they have put them into perfect blending collections.  Today I'm going to show you how I colored in my present from the All Wrapped Up stamp set, using Copic markers BG11, BG13, & BG15, which make up the Water collection.
To start off I stamped the image using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, if you do not have Memento, the next best ink is Palette.  I then took the BG11 marker and colored in the entire image.  If you are beginner with these markers, you want to use a small circle motion while coloring, this will prevent streaking.
Next, I took the mid-tone marker in this collection, BG13 and added some darker shadows to the present.  I went into the bow a little and on the left side of the package.
To blend I went over the darker colored parts with the BG11, this now has blended BG13 a little more nicely, it doesn't look as bold.
Here I colored in the lid of the present, some of the bow, and some piping with the BG13 marker.
The lid and part of the bow, was not as dark as I would have liked it to be, so I went in with my darkest marker BG15.
To finish, I colored in the center part of the box where all the detail work is, I first colored in the center using BG13, then added some BG15 on the sides to add some depth, then went over the center again with BG13 to blend it all together.  My image is now ready to use on a card.
Here is the finished product.  I cut the present image out, then using foam tape, popped it up onto the center panel of the card.  After all that coloring I wanted the package to be the center focal piece of the card, so I went clean and simple.  A beautiful card ready to be mailed out, and it will only take one stamp to mail, which makes it even better!
