Colouring with Ching-Chou Kuik

I have been having a bit of relaxing, therapeutic fun with an image from Ching-Chou Kuik.


Materials used:
Ching-Chou Kuik – (Image was a weekend freebie offer and is no longer available. I could not find it in her etsy store either)
X-Press It card
Copic pens
black and silver card
silver pen
white paint pen
Wink of Stella – Shimmer Clear
A5 card blank

I printed out the image on X-Press it and coloured it in. The sky background is one I learned in the very first monthly lesson from Kit and Clowder and I highly recommend Alyce and her fantastic courses to you. They are worth every penny/dime/cent and her one to one feedback is so encouraging and helpful. I am still very much in the early stages being a slow burner but have already learned so much and improved my colouring skills.

The moon and her jewelry are coloured with a silver glitter pen and Wink of Stella has been applied to her wings. The stars are made with a white paint pen , the first lot coloured over with the Copics and then another fresh layer put on which makes some of them look fainter and further away.

The coloured image has been matted and layered on black, dull silver and mirri silver card. The front flap of the card blank is trimmed back to half way and the mounted image attached so that it hangs over the edge. The computer printed sentiment has been matted onto black card and then stuck to the inside flap of the card.

I am really pleased with the way this one went especially as I do not have many yellow pens and blending them has always been tricky. I tried a different colour combination for her hair and think I got away with it! She looks very pensive sitting on the moon, I wonder what she is thinking!

Thank you for visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    That’s a wonderful starry sky background, and the shading in the yellow is very well executed. You’ve got glimmering highlites, which are always hard for me (I know what to do, my eye just doesn’t like strong contrast, and I’m highlight challenged when coloring. Just can’t leave the white space!!) The colors in her hair look great, and very magical, keeping with the theme of the image. You did a super job with that, so you can be proud of your copic coloring – truly! If you did this in an online class, you had even greater results, than in a classroom, where the instructor is looking over your shoulder! (and I always get critiqued on my contrast & highlights, so I do it properly there!) But when I color for myself, I do it as my eye likes, and go back with a white pen to fix highlights. TFS
