Little Note


Just for Marianne, I’m sharing a quickie today that I created with the set, Little Critters, illustrated by Anna for Whipper Snapper Designs.

I colored my little elephant with a custom shaded Copic marker.  I used a combo of BG000 and Copic Blender solution to create my custom color. I love those low numbered blue/greens, and adding blender solution lets you get varying shades of your favorites. You can check out  Marianne’s excellent tutorial today. I have done this to create several of these ‘custom color’ markers that I use frequently My other favorite color combo is YR31 and Copic Blender solution. (That one’s a trick I learned from Debbie O).

Patterned paper is from the Girl Friday line – Cosmo Cricket.  Finished card is 4×4 square.

Thanks for stopping by! And, happy tax finishing day if you are a deadline lori, like me! 🙂
