Eleanor & Pickles Digging Clams

Greetings, fellow crafters!  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky FingersThis weekend is Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S., and the unofficial start of summer.  What could be more perfect than featuring this happy summertime image from Lacy Sunshine artist, Heather Valentin? 

Today, I'm featuring Eleanor & Pickles Digging Clams....

I'll talk you through the process of how I colored this, starting with skin:

I used the lightest skin tones behind the glasses, so it would look different there -- E000 & E00.  
The rest of the skin tones are: E00, E21, E34 Lips - R21, R22 blush - R12

Eyes - BV000, BV02, BV04

Hair - YR24, Y21, E50

Glasses - B32, B34, B37, C00

Frog - G00, G20, G21, G24
Tummy - YG00, YG11, YG13, YG17
Eyes - W1, W3, W5, W7

Snorkel & Fins - BG000, B00, B02, B05
Water - BG000, BG11, C01
Sand - E30, E31, E34, E35, E37

Sundress, Hat, and Hair Ribbons -- BG000, BG01, BG05, V000, V01, V04

Pail - YR12, YR14, YR18.  The pail wasn't bright enough, so I added YR02
Clams - YG91, YG97, YR20, YR24
Pearl - C01, C00

Here are Eleanor & Pickles Digging Clams, made into a card  -

I cut the card base out on my Silhouette Cameo, with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  The puffy sentiment and sun are from October Afternoon.  The designer paper is from Carta Bella.  The Kraft paper is from Close To My Heart.

You'll find this tutorial and other wonderful tutorials on the Coloring Without Boundaries blog.  There's  opportunities to improve your coloring with Heather Valentin's online coloring classes.  They are available for purchase in the Lacy Sunshine Store.  Check out the Lacy Sunshine Color N Craft Community on Facebook and the Coloring Without Boundaries Facebook Group for inspiration and information.

Emilio Boo Oink Oinker

Happy Sunday my Lacy friends!  It is my turn to post today and I have Emiloo Boo Oink Oinker to share with you today!  When I was coloring this little cutie I kept thinking of my daughter Heather, she loves little pigs and in my head I kept reciting " this little piggy went to market....this little piggy stayed home!"  
When coloring, I used both my SN and Copics...unfortunately I do not have good combos for pink in my Copics.  

Have a happy Emiloo Boo kind of day!
Hugs Jane

Eleanor And Pickles Birdie Fun

Hi Everyone, Anet here.

Today I want to share my colouring
of the frog with you.

I used Heather's
Eleanor And Pickles Birdie Fun.

Here is my colouring
of the frog in the
following steps

Firstly I started with my darkest Green Copic Sketch Marker and blended it out with my second darkest marker.

Secondly I used my lightest and second lightest marker to blend out the previous colours.


I added a small amount of E93 in the white areas and blend it out with my lightest green marker.

I used my Colourless Blender Copic Marker to make dots on the side of the face.

My finished coloured
Copic Colour Combo that I used
to colour this adorable
