A Sky Experiment ~

Hi iCopic friends!  It's Alyssa here...sorry I'm late again!  I just crawled out of bed.  I've been sick with fever, chills, sore throat...the whole gamut!  I didn't get a card done for you today, but I did play around with my Copics!!  How could I not?  Even if I am sick, it was my day off, so I just had to crack those babies! 

I started out by coloring this gorgeous little stamp from Stampavie's Sarah Kay line, Lynette Collecting Her Vegetables.  A lot of times, we color an image but don't color a ground.  With this stamp, you kind of have to!  It's colored and shaded with E55, E57 and E59.  Once this was all colored up, I realized I was going to need some sky.  I'd seen something rather interesting on a Danish blog the other day and decided to give it a go.  Mind you, it's not the best, but it's an interesting technique and something that I will continue to try to perfect!  I may just need some more blue Copics to make it work {snort!}  Good thing I know the perfect place to get them!!  lol 
I started by drawing/scribbling some random cloud like structures with B000. 
Using B21, I added just a couple of shaded spots.  Now, this is where you have to get creative.  It's the sky!  It's much harder to determine where shadows are going to be and how light will reflect - talk about artistic license!!  Lastly, I used the 0 Colorless Blender to soften it all...but I want to keep you coming back for more next week, so you'll have to come back then to see it all done and made up on a card!  I would love to see if any of you have done this technique in the past or try it out now!  Leave me a comment with a link so I can see your work!  I'm off to go take some more cold meds and crawl right back into bed!  Thanks for stopping by!  Toodles!  ;o) lyss
