The Copic Creations challenge #19 is to color FUR! It's a fun challenge and after you've looked around we hope you'll enter your furry card to win the prize! Please take a look at the Copic Creations Challenge Blog for the other designers' cards and I'm sure Mary has linked something from Maryanne on coloring fur if you need any advice on how to get started!
The prize? It's sponsored by Squigglefly this time and the winner gets their choice of THREE images from the store!
Iused a bit of the "Nasty Rag" technique, but I'm afraid it doesn't show well. Maybe if you click to see him close up. Anyway, I started with my lightest brown and worked my way to the darker colors. Just before the darkest brown (E59) I wet my rag (actually a white face cloth that I use for this technique, it's not "nasty" yet) with blender solution straight from the bottle and blot the image to remove and "mottle" the color a bit. I didn't want to overdo it and remove too much. Finally, I added my darkest color.
Here are the browns I used: E34, E43, E55, E25 and D59.
You have TWO weeks to make and enter a card! We hope you'll join in-what better way to start the New Year!
