Make it Colourful JULY Challenge~Casting Shadows

Hi everyone! Today starts a new challenge on the Make it Colourful Challenge Blog, and for the month of JULY our challenge is: CASTING SHADOWS.
 
I admit this was definitely another hard one for me. It definitely helps to look up photos online to use for inspiration. I decided to try something different this time and try for a watercolor feel to my Copic coloring. I used the MiC Old Oak Tree Digi.

I need some more practice, but I do like the softness and blend of the colors. I just need to work on the placement of the colors a little more. 

To get the watercolor effect, I dabbed my colors on balled up pieces of Kleenex and then added Colorless Blender on top of the colors. Next I dabbed the Kleenex onto the X-press It Blending card. Pretty simple technique and I LOVE the watercolor look.

 Tree: E44, E47, E49
Leaves: YG23, YG67, G46
Grass: YG23, YG67, YG97, G28, G46
Shadow: C5, C7
Sky: Y15, YR68, R02, R08, R29, R35, B05
Colorless Blender
