Color Saturation...

So, the theme over at the Copic Challenge blog this time is color saturation.

It got me thinking....about color techniques, painting and density of color.

One of the hardest things I struggle with is diffusing of color when I'm blending with my copics.  I tend to not lay down enough of the dark color, or if I do a dark/bright color, I have a hard time getting a good shadow effect going.  

Hopefully I did better with this one!!

Card Recipe:
PAPERS: patterned paper by We R Memory Keepers, Black Treasuremates paper, Medium Yellow and Deep Groovy Grape Colormates papers by WorldWin

STAMPS: Witch Emma Stamp  by CC Designs, Phrase stamp and Spider stamp (on inside of card) by Stampin' Up.

INKS/Markers: Black Ink by Memento, Black Craft Ink by Stampin' Up, Copic Markers found at Paperthreads
