Look! Ruby Slippers!

Hello, fellow coloring enthusiasts!  Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.  Are you as fond of The Wizard of Oz as I am?  You'll love today's coloring tutorial!


Today's coloring is from Heather's Valentin's Lacy Sunshine's Wizard of Oz coloring book, available at Amazon.com.

Let me introduce you to "Look!  Ruby Slippers!"


Here's a step-by-step of how I did this:

I wanted everything but the ruby slippers and the yellow brick road to be muted, so I started coloring the slippers and the road:

Slipper Copic colors -- R21, R22, R24, R27, R29, R39

Yellow brick road -- I started with a base coat of Y32, then layered on YR23 and YR24.  It wasn't as bright as I wanted it, so I went over it all with Y02.
Next, the house:
Siding -- C5, C3, C1, C00
Shutters -- BV000, BV01, BV04, BV02
Roof -- BV11, BV13, BV17
Bushes -- G40, G43, G82, G94, G99

Flowers in bushes -- YR61, YR65, YR68, YG17
Tall Flowers:
Leaves -- YG03, YG63, YG67
Blooms -- R81, R83, R85
Grass -- G000, G00, G02

Sky -- B0000, B000, B00, B01
Wood base -- E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39

Then, I used cranberry Stickles on the ruby slippers to make them sparkle.  Because, really, what are ruby slippers without some bling?




There's an Anything Goes challenge going on at the Lacy Sunshine blog. It goes all month, so I hope you join in on the fun!  I have 2 Facebook groups to check out, too.  There's the Coloring Without Boundaries Facebook group and the Lacy Sunshine Color N Craft Community.  Heather has many wonderful coloring books for sale at Amazon.com, so go shopping!
