Finn Whistling a Hello ~

Hello, hello!  Hope you all are doing fantastic on this fine Friday!  Alyssa here with a sweet new Stampavie image, Finn Whistling While He Works.  The artist is Sarah Kay, and she draws such darling children!  These are very detailed images, so you have to use a light hand when coloring with your beloved Copics.  The end result is so worth it though! 

He is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on a rustic cream cardstock.  This neutral cardstock takes a little bit of practice because it bleeds more than papers designed for Copic coloring.  Make sure when you are starting out with your Copics or coloring on a different medium to test out on some scrap...you might just ruin your whole project if you don't!  Don't ask me how I know!  lol

I tried a different technique for the ground cover and just dotted the greens around - YG61, YG63 & YG67.  I wasn't impressed with how harsh it looked at first, so I ran the 0 Colorless Blender over it a bit and then added some more dabs of color here and there.  I think this technique still needs a bit of work before I'll be totally happy with it, but hey, we're all learning here!  :o) 
Copics used:
B91, B95, B97, B99, C1, C3, C5, C7, E000, E00, E11, E31, E33, E37, E71, E74, R20, V95, V99, Y15, Y21, Y26, Y28, YG61, YG63, YG67 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to play along with the current iCopic Color Challenge for your chance to win 6 Copic Sketch Skin Tones I!  :o) lyss
