If you have any questions about “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” you can refer to this post.  

We recently started sharing Copic Color Combos on our Instagram account - many of your left lovely feedback on you you appreciate that we offer combos and share what works for us. If you haven't seen them so far - maybe check them out and let us know what you think!

Of course we prepared something for this special occasion as well, so let's see what we have for you:

For today's coloring we picked the Creepy Cute  / Gruselig bezaubernd stamp set and colored up the little zombie-piggie :)


First some pale green skin, zombie-like, you know?



I wasn't sure about the color for his shirt - thought about some dirty-gray combo fist, but I really wanted this image to pop and have some contrast. So I went for my most favorite red combo - it's so intense!


Then some brown/gray  for his feet and the cork:


Ta-Dah! That's it - the image is finished.




Hope you like this version - we'd love to see yours as well!

Here are the full stamp sets:

 


Now it's time for a 
GIVEAWAY!


We're picking one lucky winner who will receive a 25€ gift card to the Create A Smile store - yay!
