Bebunni Wedding Card Spectrum Noir colouring Tutorial

I’m nowhere near a perfect colourist & I DO make many mistakes but I enjoy what I do & if doing this step by step helps one person then to me that makes it worthwhile. Gotta say Iv loved making it & hope whoever reads it enjoys it also. So here goes my 1st colouring tutorial  🙂 xxx

Bebunni Tutorial by Sarahjayne

What I used….

Neenah card stock for stamping & the die cutting

Spectrum Noir pens… colours are….. IG1,2,3,5  CR 2,3  CG1, TB1  EB1, 2 GB8,11 LG3 & 4  , DG1, HB1,2

Collall 3d Gel & Tacky Glue

Marianne dies (Unsure of names as no names on packets.

Blue Velvet Ribbon

docrafts Pearl/Diamanté

Scalloped circle card base

Pale Blue Pan Pastel

I am going to start of with Mrs Bebunni ears…. For this ear I used IG1,2,3,5…..

Don’t be in a rush to put your finished colour down just for 1 ear I did 7 steps. I have added the colours I used to the side of the pictures as some of my identification markings have rubbed off.

IMG_7996IG1 I covered the full ear

IMG_7997IG5 Here I added the darkest colour

IMG_7998IG3 Using this pen go over your darkest colour & bring the colour out towards the edge of the ear more

IMG_7999IG2 again going over all the colours & bringing it towards the edge

IMG_8001IG1 I used this to blend all my colours together

IMG_8002IG5 I now added more of the darker colour to make it stand out

IMG_8003IG1 Then I added lightest again so no harsh lines.

Other ear I did in 6 stages still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5…..







Next I started to colour her head in 5 steps still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5…..

Keep turning your image around when you are colouring

IMG_8010IG1 to do the full colour

IMG_8011IG5 to add little dots where I wanted the shading. For this bit I turned the image upside down

IMG_8013IG2 to blend the dots

IMG_8012IG3 to bring the colour further into the face

IMG_8014Ig1 to cut out the harsh lines. If you wanted a darker shadow you would now add IG5 again but I was happy with this amount of shading

Next was colouring Mrs Bebunni’s body still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5

IMG_8018IG1 to do the full cover

IMG_8019IG5 to do the shading dots

IMG_8021IG3 to blend the dots

IMG_8022IG2 moving it out to the centre of your Bebunni

IMG_8023IG1 to blend it all together

Next to start on Mr Bebunni here I am going to start on his body still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5

IMG_8024IG1 to do your full colour

IMG_8025IG5 to put the shading dots down

IMG_8026IG3 to blend the dots & add a little more shading to areas I didn’t want to dark

IMG_8027IG2 to start blending the colours together

IMG_8028Final all over coat of IG1

Now for his face still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5…..

IMG_8029IG1 for full colour

IMG_8030IG 5 for my shading dots

IMG_8031IG3 for blending the dots

IMG_8032IG2 with this i started to pull the ink further into his face

IMG_8033IG1 to blend everything together

Now for his ears I am going to do these two both together still using the same pens  IG1,2,3,5 for me this was done in 6 steps as I needed to use my blender pen to remove excess ink from inside ear. Yep I make mistakes! Tons of them but you only learn by doing a mistake 😉

IMG_8034IG1 To add the 1st coat of block colouring

IMG_8035IG5 to add my shade dots

IMG_8036IG3 to blend my dots

IMG_8037IG2 to start the blend moving over the ear

IMG_8038IG1 to blend everything

IMG_8038a IMG_8039Look here is where I used to much ink so I dotted the blender pen over the top & removed it.

Ears & Stomache for Mrs Bebunni I used colours… CR2 & CR3

IMG_8040CR2 to do your block colour

IMG_8041CR3 to add a little shade

IMG_8042CR2 to go back over it all to blend it

Mr Bebunni ears here I used CG1 & TB1

IMG_8043CG1 to do the block covering

IMG_8045Tb1 to add some colouring I also added a little to the left hand side of his tail 🙂

Mr Bebunni Hat I used EB2 GB8 & 11

IMG_8046EB2 I used this to flick the colour from the outside of the hat to the middle so I left a white highlight showing

IMG_8047GB8 this looks so harsh but It will work 🙂 just add this colour for your shadow

IMG_8048EB2 where you have just added your shadow use this colour now to blend the 2 colours again flicking it into the centre

IMG_8049GB11 I used this one for the sash on his hat. I added 1 coat & then went back & used it again

Now its Mrs Bebunnie’s Veil I used EB1 & 2

IMG_8050EB1 I only used a little of this on some outlines

IMG_8051EB2 I added a little to the top of the veil & a little to the bottom

IMG_8053EB1 to blend the colours in

Next I did the flowers on her head & her bouquet at the same time using colours LG3 & 4

IMG_8054LG4 is lighter than LG3 so I used this 1st just dotting around the stamp

IMG_8055LG3 Then I used this colour to add more dots over the top. This is where I noticed I had missed part of the Veil head dress so I went back to colour it

Using EB1  & 2

IMG_8056EB1 to colour block it

IMG_8057EB2 added to left hand side

IMG_8058EB1 to blend

I left the colouring here so I could see what colours I would use after Iv decided what kind of card I was going to make…..

IMG_8060   IMG_8061

IMG_8063  IMG_8065

I decided on using a Marianne Die to cut my image out, but as you can see here the ears would of been chopped off if I had but the image & die straight into the machine so in picture 2 you can see I marked on each side of the ear where I needed to put so I could bend them forward to stop this happening. I then put the die back in place & put through my Die cutting machine.

IMG_8076I then used Pan pastel to chalk around the edge of the die & a little in the centre near the stamped image to take away some of the white glare.

IMG_8078 Then I cut out another die cut shape using a different Marianne die

IMG_8077 I glued the main image to the centre of the 2nd Marianne die cut

IMG_8078 And then used Tacky glue to add the frame.

IMG_8079 I cut out the 2 x Marianne dies again on white card & again chalked the 1st Die cut frame like I did for the main toppper

IMG_8081  It was now that I finally decided to colour the rest of the image in. I used TB1, DG1, HB1, CR2 & HB2 to colour the flowers & on Mrs Bebunnie’s body I noticed I had not coloured the tag so I coloured it using CR2

To make the card up I used a circle scalloped card & folded one side down to make an easel card, I added the main stamped topper & then the bottom Die topper using Tacky glue. Then I used 3d gel to add a velvet bow & the pearl Gem was cream so I coloured it using TB2 and again used 3d gel to stick it on top of the bow.

I haven’d added a sentiment yet as I will put it in my card box & wait until its needed for a wedding & then I will personalise it.

Many Thanks for reading.

Happy Crafting Sarahjayne xx
