Possum Love

Hey all :)

I'm here today to share my latest MiC card using the super cute Possum and Joey digital stamp, I'm loving discovering how to colour fur. Looking at so many photo references until I found one that I thought showed me enough detail. Plus using the Possum and Joey digital stamp made it a little easier for me as my husband and I often see real life possums on our daily walks.

Anyway here's the card, I hope it inspires you to grab your favourite  MiC animal image and join in on this months challenge.

Possum and Joey were coloured with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils.

I used the Copic's on the base of the image - W00, 1, 2, 3, 4, Y21 & V000.

The Polychromos are used to give the fur texture - Warm Grey IV 273, Warm Grey VI 275 & Black 199.

For the Background I used my airbrush with YG23, 25, 17 to create a Bokeh effect then blended Distress Oxide Forest Moss around the edges.

I chose to keep the Chippies natural.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Animal Challenge - Make it Crafty June Challenge

G'Day :)

Hope you are having a lovely day!

Today I'm sharing my challenge card for June's Animal Challenge, my focus for this challenge was 'FUR' and I must admit I was shaking in my boots when I found this out because I sucked at colouring fur! So instead of complaining about it too much I decided on the image I would colour and started researching. I looked at so many photo's of Koalas until I felt confident enough to start and believe me I coloured heaps of these until I was happy with this one. My point is if something is scary just keep practicing and like me you might be pleasantly surprised with the results.
