We’re going wild with our Copic Markers! Over the past year and a half, we have traveled across the country with Creating Keepsakes Magazine’s CK Convention teaching our Simply Copic classes. We are happy to announce that we are starting a new series on the blog modeled after our Simply Copic class series.  From time to time, we will post fun tips and tutorials on creating with your Copic Markers right here on the Clear and Simple Stamps blog.


Simply Copic: Cheetah Print


For today’s fun project, we are talking animal prints. With a few simple strokes, you can transform any image by adding a fun pattern.

To create Rag Doll Willa’s adorable cheetah print dress, we have put together a step-by-step tutorial that will make you wild about adding fun details to your rag doll outfits.

From left to right in our diagram below, we follow the basic coloring principles for coloring in Willa’s dress.

The colors we used are Red Trio 4.

We started by coloring in the dress with the R81.

We added the shadows with the R85.

We went directly over the shadow with the R83.

Then we colored in the entire dress again with the R81.

To place our cheetah spots, we colored in a few small sloppy circles

using R25 from our Red Violet Trio 3.

To complete the print, we added brackets on the sloppy circles

using T6 from our Toner Gray Trio 3.

And here is Rag Doll Willa all decked out in her trendy cheetah print dress, ready to celebrate and brighten someone’s special day!
