Copic Brunette Hair: Awareness Ribbon Marci


Hello, my friends!   Marie here to share another tutorial with you today.

I just adore this paper - BoBunny Zip-A-Dee-Doodle Collection.
I wanted to make sure I showcased the gorgeous paper to I cut a flower from the paper using my designer layer.    I did this in an area that would not show when I applied my focal image.
I then shaped the flower with my moving tools and mat.
Faber Castell Gel Medium was applied to help keep the shape.
The great thing is...   It was a great embellishment and I didn't have to use another piece of paper!

  3. Wonderful tutorial. I always learn so much watching them! Thanks for your time!

  4. Gosh, that was a brilliant idea to cut the flower from the background paper! Not only does it match but it makes you more aware of the background which often gets overwhelmed by the cute image. You are a wizard at coloring brunette hard for me. Thanks for the tutorial!


Thank you for visiting my blog. I look forward to your comments - It's like having a cup of coffee with an old friend!
