CMC Challenge #4--Straight hair coloring

Challenge #4 at Color Me Copic is to color straight hair using Amy's "feathered" technique that she shared in her second video here. It's always fun watching other people color, and Amy makes straight hair coloring look so easy!

For my card, I decided to use Pinky, a digi stamp by Christy Croll of Tiddly Inks. I should have made her a "big head" like Amy did so the technique would show up better. But it was fun to try this, and I definitely need to practice a lot more.


Thanks, always for visiting! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Stamps: Tiddly Inks digital image
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Bazzill Basics
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, Tim Holtz embossing folder (thanks, KB!), seam binding, pop dots
