Lil’ ol’ me….


When I’m tired but can’t sleep, I don’t count sheep. I stamp. This was cranked out at 2 a.m. last night just for fun. So, now I’m going to type a quick blog post and take a nap then start the Mom Taxi and the dinnertime hoopla.

The WhipperSnapper images were colored with Copic Markers below. I’m sure you’ve seen and read about the new extra light Copic colors that became available last week. (You can find them in stock and on sale at  eclectic Paperie.) These are great for shading and blending. I used the BG0000 for the sky background, and my personal favorite the Warm Gray 00 for shading. So hard to photograph, but these extra light hues let your colored projects shine and highlight on their own. The shading and shadowing should be really subtle and soft.  It should should not scream, “SHADED! SHADOWED!”. You’ll get that with these new extra light colors.


One quick note: if you frequent my blog, you know that the 9th of the month is usually when I post my Divine Design challenge for the month. I wanted to let you know that I’ll be posting next week on the 16th, along with Angel, Nancy and Jami.

Thanks for stopping by. It’s time to mash potatoes.
