CMC: Kissed By A Dew Drop

Kissed By A Dew Drop

Hello to all my wonderful friends!    I want to share my card I Design Team card for CMC.  WE are having a fun challenge sponsored by Tiffany Doodles.   The theme is "yellow".  

For my image, I selected the "Daphine"  digital image  illustrated by Tiffany Doodles.  This is such a versatile image that can be used for so many different occasions!  

My highlights were identified.  I started with my shadow area using Y21.

I blended out with Y15 using a flicking method.   

I used tip to tip blending method for Y15 and Y00.  I blended out to my lightest area with Y0000.   

I repeated the process with the rest of the leaves.   It is best to complete ear leaf separately.  This will allow you to get a better blend because the ink is still wet.   

This is what the finished leaves look like.   I added a little B0000 to the back leaves to provide shadow and dimension.  It makes the leaves appear to be set in the background.

I added a touch of dew drops to the image.   I made a dot with my colorless blender and then darkened 
 the shadow side with with  Y 21 and blended the dew drop.  When it dried, I added a touch of Copic opaque ink to the highlighted side of the the dew  drop.   

I layered my card and added some punched and die cut flowers for embellishment.  

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
