Celebrate!

Hey everybody!

Have you been following along with the '30 Days' birthday celebration that Kristy has been hosting on her blog this month? She has brought together a great group of contributors to help her out with various tips, tutorials and even give-aways so you don't want to miss a single day!

Today is my day to share and I decided to do a Copic coloring video on how I accentuate the folds and pleats in the clothing of stamped images. So I inked up Gifty Gwen because even though she was part of the Christmas clear release at Some Odd Girl this little cutie can easily be used for a birthday card as well. And she's got a great dress that is perfect for playing around with Copic shading too. :)

Well, I hope you like the new video and be sure to head on over to Kristy's blog to wish her a happy birthday and get in on all the fun!

Toodles!

I colored up Mumford The Mummy and even though I didn't have all the Copic colors you used, I think he came out soooo cute. I'm working on putting him on a card :)
