DT Ett Trykk:Tutorial- an easy way to color pleats with copics

Hi friends and crafty bloggers!

 Ett Trykk magazine is having a celebration this month! We are showcasing different techniques featured in the 50 editions since the magazine started. We are having new challenges every week using some of these techniques, so please stop by the Ett Trykk blog to have a look and join in our challenges. 

The technique I'm showcasing is coloring. So I made this little picture tutorial showing you how to color simple pleats on a dress with Copic Markers. I hope it's helpful! You will find the tutorial in Norwegian HERE
Du finner denne tutoiralen på Norsk HER!

I used 4 markers: RV95- RV93- RV91- V000
       1. Start with defining the pleats            2. Go over the dark color               3. Continue with RV91
           the darkest color RV95                        with the middle color RV93
                                                                        to blend out.

         4. Then V000 to fade the              5. Go back with RV95 again.           6. And RV93 again.
         colors. Always keep some
         white space in between.

        7. And RV 91.                                    8. And V000. Keep the white           9. I went over the dress 
                                                                     space.                                                with the 4 markers one
                                                                                                                               last time and colored                    
                                                                                                                                the rest of the image. 

That's it! I used my greys (W7-5-3-1-00) to define shadow under the dress to increase the sense of wavy fabric. 
I used these colors on the rest of the image: 
Skin: E12-11-00-000, R32-30, Hair and shoes: E44-43-42-41-40, W7, Shirt: W7-5-3-1-00, Dress, heart and headband: RV95-93-91-00.

Here's my finished card:

I used Pion Design Papers from the Alma's sewing room collection, ribbon from The Ribbon Girls, WOC flowers, pearl string from Kort og Godt, sentiment is from Norsk Stempelblad AS, doily and lace from my stash. I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink. The pearl brad is from the Live & Love craft store.
