Today is the 2nd day I am participating in The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge! I have found it to be great motivation to work on my coloring. Have you had a chance to play along?
For today's card, I started out by creating a mask for the mouse. Then I stamped it onto the card base. Next, I placed the mask on top of the image and stenciled in a scene. When I was done creating the scene, I removed the mask. Next, I noticed that there was a bit of white space, where it wasn't needed. That is why I started by creating the shadow. I then used shimmer brushes to color in the jelly beans. And then, I moved my way into coloring with markers. This is the darkest, I've colored the mice in. Although, I do like it, I wouldn't go so dark again. If you scroll underneath this card picture, you will find a close up of the mouse and jelly beans. That way you will be able to see the sparkle better.
