I have some new spring papers, new Tilda stamps and a wonderful Mojo Monday sketch to use today.
I turned the sketch on its side because it gives me more room for the flourish and sentiment at the bottom. I also drew in a bit of sidewalk that I colored with C1 and C3.

On the weekend I was looking around blogland and came across some Copic coloring videos by Zoe from Make It Crafty. She shows how to add in the pleats and wrinkles that we see in our clothing in real life, but they might not be drawn into the stamp. It was tough to make the transition from the way I usually color to thinking about light and shadows and wrinkles. It was worth it though, because the pants do look wrinkled. I don't think the blouse came out the way I wanted it, but there is fun in learning and making mistakes.
