All About Dad...

All About Dad...
Check out this multi-faceted mallard card from Doodle Pantry Designs
 where I have just been named a Top Notch Artist.
The coloring was done with a variety of Copic Marker colors (same tone range) and then blended with a colorless blender. A little shimmer mist was also sprayed to give the ducks a iridescent look (difficult to discern on the photo)

The Creative Details
Coloring: Copic Markers in colorless blender, cashmere, cool shadow, 
 honey, leaf green, mauve shadow, verdigris
Embellishments: twine, dew drops, wave sticker (K&Co)
