Hats off to Hattie!

Hey, ghoulfriends! Back again today and this time with a new Copic Creations Challenge! This time our challenge is Shading! We are sponsored this time by Kraftin' Kimmie! She has some terrific new Halloween stamps and I see on the site she has just released more new images! This is Hattie and I just couldn't resist giving her green, ghostly skin! Shading can mean all kinds of things with copics and we'd love to have you visit the Copic Creations Challenge Blog for details (on Kimmie's prize) and tutorial links! My shading involves toning down bright colors. I colored her dress in some of the Blue Violets, but didn't want it bright and wanted to deepen the shadows (she is a ghoul after all!). To do this I added some C7 and C9 to the deepest areas of shadow.

Well, thanks for visiting today! I so appreciate it! And, won't you consider joining us for the Copic creations Challenge in the next two weeks? We'd love to have your work of art added to the blog!
