Beatrix Potter - Wonderful Mother

Hello Crafter's Companion fans!! Tracy here today and I am so excited to show you a piece from the our new release, Beatrix Potter collection!!  I started to make a little piece for Easter with a basket and I suddenly switched to a Mother's Day card.  I loved the big fluffy hat on the bunny and it just reminded me or a tea party or something.

I colored Beatrix Potter using Spectrum Noirs by Crafter's Companion.  If you didn't get a chance to see my brief Tutorial and Tips on our Challenge Blog you can visit HERE to check that out.  I used a similar technique on the bunny. I wanted to get a look of fur so I used short flicking motions with my markers. 

I have mentioned this before, but when I color my images I always like to "ground" them in some way. Either by adding some gray or by adding grass as I have in the above picture. The grass is quite simple to do. I like to use 2-3 shades of green and I start at the bottom and flick up different directions.

Here are the colors that I have used today:

Thanks for looking!!
