Here’s a look at how I’ve colored it. I used Copic markers for the base layer (I love how easy it is to blend with Copic Markers!) although I only had a small set of 12 at the time of coloring this, so my range was limited and my purples came out much darker than I would have liked.
Then I used some Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils to do some further shading with similar colors, making up for my small Copic collection. I shaded all of the “3d” section of the words a slightly darker color. Then I imagined a light source coming from the top, so I shaded any sections even darker that wouldn’t reach the light – under the words or in corners.
I also used the Copic colorless blender to remove the color on the top left corners of the lettering, however if I did this again, I’d probably use a white pencil or white gel pen for this instead.
Finally, I used a yellow pencil for the background, pressing firmer towards the middle and pressing lighter on the outside to create a gradient into the white.
I originally released this free coloring page in January 2017, when it was part of one of my first adult coloring books, Color Your World. Color Your World had a full makeover in 2018, with new pages, a new cover, and the new title: Confessions of a Coloring Addict.
