Penny Black Blooming Garden

Penny Black Blooming Garden by judkajudy
.
This is one of two "shades of grey" cards I made yesterday while practicing this technique. I love the effect, but found it difficult to know when to quit. My first few attempts ended up too dark as I continued to add darker shades of grey.  The flower is colored with five shades of grey Copic markers.  I want to take on more complicated images as I learn more about shading and light sources, which really become more obvious using only grey markers.

I am currently spending my crafting time trying to figure out the "new and improved" Flickr! So far I've learned that what once took one click of my mouse now takes two or three. I am trying to be open-minded, but what I really want to do is bang my head and pout.

And then I remembered the people in Oklahoma who are dealing with such massive devestation and I am reminded my little irritations are not important.

I appreciate your visit today.

Beautiful shading, Judy! Using the gray markers really does help with shading and I think those flowers look amazing!

I hate the new Flickr too - change is difficult but you're right, it's nothing compared to those suffering so much in Oklahoma.
