Some copic coloring CMC CHALLENGE #39

I am taking both Melissa's and Suzanne's class. Love Suzanne's coloring technique.  And if you have also read my previous post you know I have become a stamp junkie.
Suzanne has a challenge once in every 2 weeks I think. I am not quite happy with my coloring yet but I thought why not start somewhere. So here is my attempt. I probably could have done a better job if I had colored on a better paper. This is Bee paper and I do not like it very much. Prefer Ginak to this. I also need to try out the cryogen paper which I will be getting soon. But I had already printed out the digital image and so went with it. The reason why I don't like Bee that much is after just 2 layer of coloring the paper refuses to accept more ink and starts becoming blotchy. It does not soak through but it does not help in blending. In this image I had go and to choose to color in red which needs more blending didn't I? Lol.
Anyway here is the card I made. One always needs to keep the early images as one can later compare how far one has improved! So here is the card without much adieu

I like the skin and hair but I should focus more on folds.
Now both these coloring was done under pressure I should say. I had a guest who wanted me to show her how I color in front of her. I told her I am a newbie but she insisted. Here's the other. I made that into a bookmark later for her

The first image is a digital stamp by SomeOddGirl called Flower Girl Mae
And the 2nd one is stamp by Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss girl - goth girl.

I think you did a great job Pam - I personally love the Bee Paper, have you tried using a second sheet of the same paper underneath to see if that helps?

Thanks Michelle. I did but the darker colors which need more blending are difficult with bee as the paper gets staurated pretty quickly. It does not soak through down but the top of the surface which I think is treated gets eroded and leaves spots

Both of your cards are lovely! I hope you enjoy Suzanne's classes as much as I am, I'm learning so much. The way you've coloured the nose on your first image is just fabulous! I'm going to have to try that! Thanks so much for joining in the fun with us over at Color Me Creative!
