Scallops

Today's challenge on SCS was scallops! I love to use these and I wanted the chance to play with an image that I could gain a little more practice with my copics. I tried the shading and blending with these markers, I was very pleased with the results. The main trick is to do all the light coloring and highlights first then blend over with darker colors to hide the seams. I added to the scallops with the cute Paper Salon frame and sentiment.

On another "note"....I am going to see Norah Jones tonight! Any other Jazz buffs out there? Should be interesting, don't quite know what I think of her new album, it is slowly growing on me.

Thanks for all the congrats on my new design spot, you are all so sweet with your comments and I love to hear from you. Have a great stampin' day!
