Polka Dot Mushrooms

Is there a more whimsical subject for Copic coloring than “Fly Agaric mushrooms,” the fabulous fungus of Scandinavian folklore?

In this week’s Spotlight video, Elena will show us how to use this cheerful Power Poppy stamp in a design layout that can be used either as a card or journal decoration.

Elena teaches bright and cheerful images using Copic Markers and colored pencils in lessons at CraftsForPaws.com.

Like the Vanilla Arts lessons which inspired them, Elena’s C4P tutorials are usually too large for cards. She’s created this Spotlight series of videos to help make use out of your growing stash of amazing oversized class projects.

So don’t stress if you haven’t got time for a quick trip to Sweden in your busy schedule. As charming as it would be to trek through forest woodlands in search of mischievous trolls, all you really need is a few minutes to watch Elena’s “Polka Dot Mushroom” video on YouTube!

 
 

About the Coloring:

Elena is an alumni of Vanilla Arts, Marker Painting Foundations Colored Pencil Plus. During these 12-week courses, artist Amy Shulke breaks all the crafty coloring laws and teaches you how to get realism and amazing depth from your Copic markers and Colored Pencils.

Purchase “Miraculous Mushrooms” Digital Stamp by Power Poppy:

Illustrator Marcella Hawley is a true mushroom aficionada! When she can’t be found at her drawing board or in her garden, she is most likely wandering through the forest glades in search of interesting fungi. Her Fly Agaric Mushroom illustration is available in either digital or photopolymer stamp form. (Note: the photopolymer version is part of an 11-piece set)
