Another Maggie Monday!

Oh, these little girls are so fun to color. I am getting good use of my Copic Markers coloring these images. They are so addictive. This one, Love Notes Tilda, reminds me of a paper girl delivering the evening news. I used the emporium paper packet for this card. It wasn't my favorite paper pack, but once I started to play with it I started liking it much better. Sometimes that happens, either you play a little bit with it or you see what someone else has created with a certain paper or product and you see it in a whole other light.

When I color with my Copics I like to use at least 3 colors to blend. It looks so dimensional when you can do this. So for the Shirt I used YG95, YG93, and YG91. I start with the darkest color and lay down a few little amount. You don't want it too dark. Then I use the middle color and feather in with it, going over the dark color as well. Then I finish off with the lightest color going over both the darker colors to blend. It does take some keep with it...don't get frustrated.

I also used the Wishes Book from Close To My Heart for the sketch...Pieced together from page 34.
