Creating a light source from a certain direction using Copic Markers

How cute is this Easter Card. I can’t believe it’s already time to start creating for Easter! I’m using Cottontail Cuties from Neat and Tangled. This set is so cute and you can create so many different scenes with it.

I’ve colored my images using Copic Markers and stamped my images using Black Memento Ink and stamped onto Copic Xpress it Blending Card.

I know this scene might look like I’ve masked the stamps but the bunnies and all the little eggs with the hearts are stamped separate and cut out. I actually did some fussy cutting but there is a Nice and Neat Cottontail Cuties Die Set, if you prefer.

Ok, you have heard me talk about stop looking for the light source and just to put the shadows where it makes sense but today I just want to share how you can Creating a light source from a certain direction using Copic Markers. So I created a guide 1/4 x 5 inches and stuck a brad in them at one end. You can use this so you can actually see a light source. I know sometimes it’s hard to imagine something that isn’t there so seeing these guides might make you look differently at your images.

Take a look at the tutorial below so you can see how my light source starts to come to life and in the direction from the right.
