Chris’ Copics Tips!

“One of my favorite flowers are Daisies.  They are so incredibly happy!   You can find this adorable digi stamp at in the Lila Grey shop.   I love how fast this was to color!  It is perfect when you need a super cute card quickly!!
This digi is very simple, but it doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot of detail.  Each petal casts a shadow on its neighboring petal.  When you are coloring this image be sure to pay attention to those tiny details.  It will bring this beautiful flower to life!  I wanted something bright and cheerful, so I colored my daisy in pinks.
Happy Coloring,
Chris”
