House Mouse-Designs Thistle Nap (Copic Colored)

Hello Everyone,

Here is a fun image that I colored for the January 2016 Stampendous Catalog.

 This one gives a lot of practice on "flicking"  If you have taken any of my classes, you all know that I refer to an airplane doing a touchdown.  When a plane barely lands then lifts back up.  That's the motion you want to do when flicking your Copic brush.  Do not sit your brush down onto the paper before flicking.  You want to gradually touch the paper while flicking or twisting your wrist, and continue your flick as you gradually lift off the paper.  This is kinda hard to explain unless you see it in motion. Therefore, I just pulled out my camera and did a quick little video below.

I really wanted some fresh air so I pulled my camera out onto the patio and recorded out there.. (sorry about the background noise - seems all the dogs, planes and neighbors decided it was nice to be out also!).

The colors used here are:
Purples:V01, V12, V15, V09 or RV02, V12, V15, V09
Greens: YG03, YG63, YG67
Mouse: W1, W3, W5, E00, E11, E000 and R20 for a bit of cheeks.
Stamp available through Stampendous or your local Stamp store:  Thistle Nap #HMR57

Give it a try, if you have a question, please ask.  Looking forward to seeing your comments on what you thought of this card.
