Copic Creations #2 --- Blue Jeans

Copic Creations Challenge #2 is coloring/blending/shading jeans, which I have been doing quite a bit of lately so I had this adorable Country Girl from Sarah Kay ready to go. I love coloring this image (as I do all of them) with Copics because of the opportunity to shade for depth and highlights.

I just started coloring with Copics in November '08 and was immediately hooked! The Copic Creations blog is so terrific because of the tutorials offered by the DT. Be sure to check it out!

I apologize for the shadow over the card. The lighting wasn't cooperating and I wanted to show the embossing on the white CS. Thus the close-up below.

This challenge is up until April 30 so you have plenty of time to join in! Oh! --- there is a terrific prize, too!

Embossing on smaller white rectangle by Cuttlebug embossing folder. Grid on card base was done with Scor-Pal at one-half intervals.
