TGF: Tutorial Tuesday – Colouring Black Hair with Copic Markers

Greetings, friends!
I have a fun colouring tutorial for you today that is featured at The Greeting Farm Blog. I hope that you are all enjoying the latest releases! I can’t tell you how much I love lil’ Cheeky Geeky and I see SO many possibilities with Princess Anya No. 4 and Prince Ian. 😀
You are always so kind to tell me that you love my colouring (a BIG thank you!) and I also was recently asked how I colour hair on TGF images so I thought why not give you a quick tutorial. There is no “right or wrong” way to colour, but I want to show the way I colour hair.
I wanted to do something more video based, but I’m not a fan of hearing myself talk, so I put together a series of photos and combined them into this video here:

**I specifically used black hair as I’ve heard that can be an intimidating colour, but it really isn’t! It just takes practice. I use the same method to colour all different hair colours.  

My finished card:

TGF Tutorial Tuesday: Sitting Casual Canucks Card

Hiya friends!

I hope that your week is going well so far. I received a lot of sweet comments on my last Wonderland side step card and I thought it would be great to show you a tutorial on how to create your own side step card.

I’m going to be using one of TGF‘s latest releases, Sitting Casual, with a masculine/hockey theme. (My home team is the Vancouver Canucks so those are the colors I chose). Let’s get started!

One 5.5 x 8.5 piece of cardstock
Paper trimmer
Scoring Tool (I used Martha Stewart’s)
Embellishments for your card

Step 1: Line your cardstock at 3″ on the hamburger side

Step 2: Start at 1″ and cut your cardstock all the way to 6 1/2″

Step 3: Score the 2 1/2″ (smaller side) of the cardstock at 4 1/4 (your regular A2 size)

Step 4: Now score the 3″ (wider) side at 1, 2, 3 1/4, 4 1/2 and 6 1/2

Step 5: Fold your score line at 4 1/4

 Step 6: Fold the first score line (1″) on the right hand side of the card down

Step 7: Fold your second score line (2″) the opposite way and continue so that you are accordion folding the right side of you card.
Voila!! Just a reminder of what my card looked like:
Thanks so much for dropping and checking out my post today! You will totally want to come back tomorrow as we kick off our March Madness Challenges in TGF‘s SCS Forum!!!!

Have a fabulous day!
