It's Wedding Season!
Are you getting ready to celebrate with friends and family?
"Cheers!" is my latest Copic coloring image, another realism challenge for those of you who love food illustration!
This digital stamp is completely free to Free Digi Club subscribers from now until July 2017.
No strings. No spam.
It's simply a free image for you to color.
Subscribers to the FDC receive one free image every month, delivered right to your email inbox.
My digital stamps are ideal for Copic marker coloring but they also work great with colored pencil and even watercolor.
The images are full of wide open spaces to blend and celebrate pretty color. There are no distracting texture marks to get in the way of your creativity!
That's what the "Vanilla" in Vanilla Arts Co. is all about. I give you the vanilla base, you add the hot fudge, the sprinkles, the whipped cream, and the Copic ink.
Copic Markers & Colored Pencils!
I've colored the sample here with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor Premier pencils plus one Luminance and one Derwent pencil.
Would you believe this image uses only 6 Copics?
You don't have to spend a fortune markers!
My minimalist approach uses a much smaller supply list than the average Copic project.
Cheers! is an intermediate to advanced level image. If you're looking for something beyond the silly stamps where the food has little smiley faces or cutesy decoration, this is the image for you!
And it can easily go large! Color it full page or half page size. Cardmakers could try it smaller with a bit less detail to the coloring OR color it large, scan, and print colored copies at a smaller scale!
Disappointed by Glass tutorials?
In the latest issue of Vanilla Coloring Tips at YouTube, Amy discusses why blog and YouTube tutorials fail far more often than they work and how to ditch the blue markers for more realistic glass.

Take the Cheers! Class
Change your approach to glass, moving beyond blue marker tutorials towards dynamic and transparent glass with amazing realism.
And this is a practical lesson. We color champagne in this course but the same technique can be applied to any beverage in many kinds of glassware.
This Marker Painting Workshop lesson is perfect for intermediate and advanced colorers who are looking to add more realism to their projects.
Learn to color with realism- new challenges every month!
Cheers! is the start of an upcoming series of classes on realistic glass and china. You'll be amazed at how a simple mindset shift can inspire you to use your existing blending skills to create amazing glass!
You already have the skills and tools, now learn to apply them to realism!
Ditch the standard blue marker techniques and start coloring real glass.
The best thing about Marker Painting Workshops:
They are NON-SEQUENTIAL!
You do not need three months of prior experience to understand the concepts and techniques in this lesson.
If you can handle basic Copic blending methods and if free tutorials aren't much of a challenge anymore, then you're ready for something more!
Learn to incorporate real artistry into your coloring projects, one concept at a time. Every Workshop details a new method for enhancing realism, depth, and dimension.
Each class stands on it's own as independent learning. You don't have to take six of my other classes to understand this lesson.
All of my Workshop classes are FOREVER ACCESS. Work at your own pace and repeat the project as many times as you'd like.
Come color with me. It's a ton of fun!
