Quick Background Coloring

Welcome papercrafters!

Here's a quick way to add color to your paper background (we're talking about the yellow-colored portion here):
I usually outline my stamped image with a pastel-colored marker (I like to use Copic light blues B00 and/or BG01, especially on snowmen and/or a light grey C2) after I finish coloring it in to give them more dimension.  Here I did the same thing only I extended out the marker strokes by making them broader and keeping them horizontal all the way through. I used Y11 pale yellow copic marker for the background on this tag. Just a quick tip for you! 

You can find this tag here.  Enjoy every moment of TODAY!

Ouuuu! She is so sweet. The way you've coloured her is precious (the yellow bkgrd rocks!) and tat stitching. Too perfect.
