Heart 2 Heart - Hello Sunshine

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is Marker Madness. Pull out your markers and show us the magic that you can create with them! 

I am not a whiz with markers but I do my best... Shading has always been difficult from as I just don't see where it should happen. Some people have a natural ability to visualize things like that and that is most certainly a gift that I do not have. I simply follow the lines in a flower like the one I stamped below. I used 3 shades of pink - primarily the Bashful colour and 2 darker pinks to highlight the lined areas. I also went over the flower with the Clear Shimmer Brush in sections but that can only be seen in person (as usual). 

The ribbon on the card took me forever to do... adhering it down since it didn't have any wire in it was quite a task, especially since it was sheer. I liked the pattern on it and really wanted to use it for this card; same as the twine that I have had forever. 

This is the last challenge for September. You have until the end of the month to link up with this or any other Heart 2 Heart challenges - and you must use at least some Close To My Heart products in your creations.

  1. I've taken a couple classes in Copic and I too have trouble with what should be shaded or I still do pretty much the same thing as you and it seems to turn out. Of course in class, I can follow the direction. Love the color combination and your striking.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
