iCopic Weekly Challenge #35 - Thanks Friend!

Happy Monday! Are you ready for another great iCopic Weekly Challenge? This challenge happens to be a favorite of mine. The challenge is to color on something other than smooth white paper. Just think Kraft, Vanilla, Watercolor, Textured or any other kind of paper you can think of other than smooth white. I am pretty sure you can guess by now how much I love Kraft paper. I really love to use my Copics to color on Kraft. The darker paper gives your coloring a deeper richer look. For my challenge card I decided on using the adorable Critters in the Forest set by Lawn Fawn. I just knew the raccoon and log would look great colored on Kraft cardstock. I started off by coloring the log using a trio of browns (E34, E35 & E37) and colored the leaves in using (YG23 & YG25). Next I colored that cute raccoon using a trio of warm grays for the body (W1, W3 & W5) and colored his face using cool grays (C4, C7 & C9). Using the warm grays and kraft paper really gave the raccoon that perfect blend of gray & brown fur. I added just a touch of white to his face to highlight the eyes. Isn't he too cute? Ready to play along for a chance to win a wonderful iCopic prize and to be featured on the iCopic Blog? Woo Hoo!
