The Bunnies are Gathering

Not great pictures! In any case...

The yellow/orange background was done with Copic markers on glossy CS.

Foreground is also done with Copics.

You can't tell in these photos, but the eyes have stickle's sparkle in them.

The Bunny Stamp is Stamp Barn


Because you asked.......
Sorry about the useless picture of the copics.
I guess I better work on my photography skills. Ya think???LOL
I used the following markers for the background.
Y21,Y15, Y19, Y17, Y38, and YR09
Because you asked.......
To achieve the background effect, all I did was cover the center of my glossy
CS with a mask. I used painter's tape.
Then starting with the lightest color, swipe your marker (multiple times)
from the mask out to the edge of the CS. Do a little bit and then
change to a shade darker and repeat. Keep repeating this process
until you complete the card.
I hope this helped.
You do not need copics to do this background.
You can use the direct to paper method as well.
I can't stess this enough.......Play and never be afraid to experiment.
Try anything when it comes to art.
I usually produce better cards when I am experimenting, then
when I am trying to follow instructions, or have a card all planned out.
I've never been good at taking instruction. LOL
I am not very good at explaining things in writing. If you have
any further questions about this card or any other card, You can email
me your phone number (if you are within North America) and I will call you.
If you are outside North America, You can email me and request my phone number.
I am much better at explaining that way.
Smiles & Cheers,
Dorothy
