I've been crafting a fairly long time. And if you were to look in my craft room, you'd think I'd been doing it for 80 years! (Think 100 lbs of crap in a 1 lb container!) But there are so many areas I keep trying to improve in. Copic coloring is one. So I watch videos. Like tons of them...because I think I have a "coloring video" addiction.
I then run up to my craft room and practice what I just learned. In this case it was the flicking motion to create fur on this Furry Friends stamp from Avery Elle. I used several shades of gray here for this cute little pup.
Then there is this pesky light source issue I seem to be challenged with as well. Never quite sure if I have the dark and light areas correct.
Then I remember that this is supposed to be fun. And really, is the recipient going to be looking for where the light source was on my card? Or how great I "flicked?"
Well maybe...if it's a fellow crafter. So maybe that means I only send my cards to noncrafters. LOL!
Anyway, I was pretty happy with my little card. I still have tons more to learn...but I think that is the fun part of it. Always getting better...always trying new things.
Time to watch another coloring video! ;)
