Series: The Daily Marker Art Card #04

The Paper Shelter is another reliable creator of interesting digi stamps. I really ought to put together an up-to-date list of suppliers I use; a few have unfortunately closed down in the last couple of years.

I added texture to the hair with a sharp coloured pencil, the rest is pure Copic colouring. The soft carbon pencil created a nice shadow line around the edges of the girl away from the light source in the upper left; charcoal pencil is easier to smudge, but the soft carbon pencil is darker and, more importantly, conveniently in a jar on the desk in front of me 🙂 The word sticker couldn’t have been more appropriate for this image and the gold border provided a nice finishing touch.
