This is a very simple card. I wanted to play with my Copic Markers and different shading techniques. I went for a smooth blend for most of the image, using the colours pictured below. I find that if I colour over the entire area with the lightest shade after I add shading, I get the most subtle results. On her purple dress however, I broke all the rules and used colours that were a more dramatic contrast and I didn't attempt to blend at all, just layered the colours on. I like both effects! Because I didn't own a brown Copic when I did this card, I made my own by combining the orange and blue to create Dotty's unique hair colour.
When I was happy with the colouring, I just trimmed my image out and mounted her on a very simple graphic background using foam adhesive. The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set and just seemed to fit!
