It was so nice to meet Alma (the cat's pajamas lady) at CHA last week. She was so generous and kind, she gave me some of her wonderful stamps and they were perfect for this birthday card for my nephew today. Thanks Alma!!! I used basic grey mellow dp and mitered it at the corners so you have the stripes going vertical as well as horizontal. I love that bright blue shade so this was the color I wanted to pick up on the cowboy. I tied the tag up with some twine and embossed the star in gold.
I really wanted to show you a close shot of the copic marker shading. This is using the tip to tip touching technique that I have shown you in the videos. Do you see the dark shading spots on the hat and chaps? I was also able to use two very different colors on the horse and yet achieve a blended look. You can click on this photo and see it even closer!
Well, we are off to enjoy some time with the birthday boy. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
