Ivy and the Inky Butterfly is the sixth coloring book for adults released by Johanna Basford. This book is different from others in that it is also part story book and a lovely keepsake book. You can see my review of Ivy and the Inky Butterfly here.
A lot of talented colorists have put together tutorials showing how to color this beautiful book. These are often useful if you don’t know where to start, what colors to choose or just want some inspiration. You do not have to replicate the same colors as shown in the videos if you do not want to.
Johanna Basford has put together this video on how to color a butterfly. As there are over 200 butterflies in Ivy and the Inky Butterfly coloring butterflies will be something that you will soon have a lot of practice in.
Julies Passion for Pencils also has some butterfly coloring that you can learn from here
Cherry blossoms also feature in Ivy and Johanna has put together this short video on how to color the cherry blossoms as well.

What could be yummier than coloring a cupcake with Emily Illustrator

Most of the above colorists are using the Steadtler Ergosoft colored pencils which was included with the advanced copy of Ivy and the Inky Butterfly. I was also gifted those pencils and will soon be upgrading to the larger set as they are very comfortable to use.
I will keep updating this list of tutorials to color in Ivy and the Inky Butterfly as they are released.
Happy coloring x
