Dressing Up Tutorial

I've just had my first play with the BRAND NEW 'Dress Up' digital outfits for the Bombshell Angel- I've had such a blast!! :D

First I opened the Fantasy set - in Photoshop Elements and set to PRINT.
You don't need any software- you can print the Digital sets straight from your Computer Desktop.
The Digi sets will print out on half a piece of Letter or A4 sized paper.
I used some light cardstock to print the clothes onto because I wanted to colour them with my Copics.

I took my Bombshell Angel stamp and stamped her onto some cardstock.
I coloured her with my Copics (E00, E02, E11) note I didn't colour her legs as her gown and shoes would cover these.

I coloured in the clothes I had chosen for my Bombshell (C1,C3,C5 for the gown and shoes and E00, E02 for the legs)

I carefully cut around the gown, head dress and shoes and using Hermafix (my adhesive of choice!) I lined up the clothes with the Bombshell Angel and stuck them in place:

I wanted to create a suitable background for my Bombshell Goddess so I printed out an image of three columns (A copyright free image I found online - LOVE Google!)

I doodled a simple scene behind the columns and coloured it in using Copics (B00, E21,E31,E43)

I coloured in 2 of the urns from the Digital Fantasy set:

Lastly I added the Goddess Bombshell, the Urns and the Goddess banner:

I had such fun making the Bombshell into a Goddess (and YES I did trim her gown a little shorter- but she has such GREAT legs!!) I'm already starting on my next one!

Happy crafting!

This is great!! I wish I could get CS through my printer... but I suppose I could do something with regular paper...

Have you tried the Copic paper from the paper pads Sy- it's bleed proof and obviously designed to work with Copics !

I haven't done, but then again, I haven't got any Copics... yet :mrgreen: I'm planning to buy the four copics used in the skin colouring tutorial as my brush markers for skin tone are getting used so much they're bound to run out soon! :) I've ordered the fantasy set and the fun and flirty set and I have them downloaded now. I'm going to have a play. I might try using different things to colour them in with, like oil pastels, coloured pencils, etc etc, so that I can use copy paper. My laser printer twists the paper all up before it eventually spits it out and there's no alternate, flatter path to take it through unfortunately.

I'll share my results if I get good ones.

Some days my printer will take cardstock, some days not, and I use the same paper. Try using regular paper and colored pencils. I find thy are GREAT for blending and getting more colors than my Copics budget allow.
