Wryn and Mo

Happy Tuesday everybody.  Hope you're all having a good day.  It's beautiful here in Arizona today.  We have the "snow birds" showing up from the northern states and Canada right now.  They are all running around in shorts while we are in long pants and sweatshirts.  Those of us that live here full time get summer days around 110 to 114 degrees, sometimes even higher.  So, when we get to the high 60's we're cold.  Today we're in the 70's so our house is open.  My husband is in shorts but I'm not.

Today I have a digital Tiddly Inks image for you called Wryn and Mo - Love You Most, and you can get it HERE.  She's super adorable and was so fun to work with.  I'm learning to color black hair using my Copic cool grey markers.  This is actually my fourth attempt at getting the hair right.  I hope you like it. 



I made her into a 6 x 6 card with pale yellow textured card stock for the base.  I paired it up with patterned paper from DCWV Fall Stack and green solid to matt with.  The "FRIENDS" was a word cut from a piece of the patterned paper from that same fall stack.  I then inked all the edges with distress ink.  The leaves are buttons that I cut the shanks off of and mounted with adhesive dots.


 
 
 
 
 
 



I colored them up using my Copics.  The colors I used are, Skin-E000, E00, E21, R20, Hair-C9, C7, C5, C3, Dress-B18, B14, B12, and Mo-E19, E15, E13, E11.


    

I will be submitting her as class homework for black hair using cool grey in Suzanne J. Dean's CMC online Copic Marker class.  I would also like to submit her to the CMC Copic Challenge Group.

Well, that's it for now.  I hope everyone has a nice day.  Would appreciate all comments.

  5. Julie I think your black hair on this card turned out fantastic! I really really love how you have colored the little fox as well. I think everyone does to good on animals and so I end up purchasing animal stamps, but I have to admit that I just don't seem to get it down like I want them to turn out. :O( Guess I just need to keep at it and hope that one day my foxs will turn out half as good as yours. Hugs, Lisa G
