Feathering Lily The Mermaid


I was playing the other night. Trying to figure out how to do the feather technique with copics. Didn't master it on Lily, but I think I almost got it on her tail fins. She turned out so cute regardless of me not getting the technique down. I just had to make a card out of her. If any one has some tips on that technique I'd more than appreciate it. I love how it looks when I see hair done colored with that technique. I mean some of folks make it look like real hair! In the mean time, I'll keep practicing. I tried on Fairy Lily too, but my purple to yellow.....SCARY! I keep thinking of Dory singing, "Just keep swimming...." I'll keep coloring, clicking on blogs and see what else I can learn from all those other wonderful crafters out there.
Thanks for stopping by. A friend came in town, so I'm excited to spend some time with her and her boys. We haven't seen them in a year. They moved across the country.
Supplies: Copics, nesties, primas, stickles, paper pack from Michaels, Pink Cat Studio stamp, Martha Punch, PTI cardstock, SU ink pad.
