Hedgie Mail

Good Morning!
I couldn't wait to get home and colour something using a bit of knowledge I gained from Sherrie! I understand the basics of Copics a little better now.
Here I used Y20, Y21, Y23 and a bit of Y24 to colour the flower. Using colours in the same family helps blend everything nicely. I used to only use two(or three if I was feeling brave) but Sherrie explained how to get shading down ;)
I have a way to go on the colouring but I think it's a learning process....practice practice practice!
This image comes from Stampers Dream and is from the Penny Black Clear Stamp line. Wonderful Day has so many adorable images in the set!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT Monday!

Well I always thought you colored just fine - but what do I know! Love the shading and shadowing and all the effects on this colored guy - looks fab. Your little pearlies at the bottom are so sweet!
