Well I thought I had seen every trick in the book, but this technique is not something I have ever tried. Karolyn Loncon made this adorable dragon card and it just warms my heart up! I love how she embossed the shaded frame wehre the dragon sits. It is just awesome!
I really liked her background so I ended up doing the same thing. I had not used this bird stamp set as of yet, so I thought he would look great on this background.
I used Copics and remembered reading somewhere that if you shade with gray and then add red over the shading, it makes the red blending look better. I tried it and it worked. I always have a hard time blending red.
Thank you so much for looking at my creations.
