Karber Digi Design Team Card of The Week: Millie Umbrella!

Pin It
For this week's card I used Millie Umbrella. I chose her for my card this week for two reasons. One, she's adorable and such a cute stamp for Spring cards! Second, because she's awesome for newbies like me to learn shadows and shading with Copics! Because you instantly know all the shadows will be under the umbrella it makes it a lot easier to know where to lay down your darker colors. This was only my second go at shading skin tones, so please excuse the imperfections. Though I think even the Copic pros are always learning and evolving with Copics and their techniques. But if you're new to shading I couldn't think of a better image to try!

I finally got to use my new Dew Drops. I only had clear Dew Drops so what I did was drop some of my Ice Blue Copic refill ink into the tiny wells on the back of the drops and let it dry. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. :)

Here's a front view of the card to show the sentiment and faux stitching a wee bit better.
