The Outlawz Copic/Promarker Challenge


Woo Hoo, it’s Friday and another long week-end here in Canada!  We have another awesome Copic/Promarker challenge for you over at The Outlawz.  This week our theme is a “Male” card. 

Bentley Bear

Today I’m using one of my rubber stamps for a change.  I’ve had these stamp for awhile, and it was a freebie, along with a few others in the Card Making and Paper Craft magazine from the U.K.  The stamps are from the “Bentley” line.

I colored the image with copics, and then tried a new technique for the shading.  After I laid down three colors of blue, and got them blended till I was happy with it, I used the blending pen to remove some of the color, giving it highlights.  I am quite pleased with the effect.   The designer papers are from the My Minds Eve paper pad (Stella Rose).  The sentiment is another great freebie from  Create With TLC.

I want to give a shout out to my lovely blog friend Marilyn, who so kindly gave all the DT members on Stamps R Us, a tutorial on “how to make clouds”.  I hope you’ll stop by her blog and check out her wonderful creativity!  I love this technique so much, you’ll probably see a lot more clouds on my cards.
