The dare was color raindrops or dew drops using ONLY Copic markers... no masking and not even the use of a white gel pen! It's about time a challenge was actually challenging and this one tops the cake! I loved the excitement and I have been on edge with anticipation to see Zoe's card. The hardest part was figuring out the refraction and where to keep the white spots open.
Here's a close up of the results. I used a fairy stamp from Pergamano and sat her on top of a mushroom from Whiff of Joy using a mask to get one stamped on the other. I first colored the dewdrops then went back in and colored the rest. You can click on the picture for a larger view... but I cross my heart I didn't use the gel pen. ;D
I have another one finished using a different technique and I'll post that one tomorrow along with a few tips on how I colored them. Even now, I see a few things I can do differently and and need to study more. I need to work on the light source and color. For example, the drops on the edges of the images should be a different color. I might try another one before the week is over. ;D Hope you enjoyed it and don't forget to check out Zoe's amazing creation!!

Did you know? Dew is water in the form of droplets that appears on thin, exposed objects in the morning or evening. As the exposed surface cools by radiating its heat, atmospheric moisture condenses at a rate greater than that at which it can evaporate, resulting in the formation of water droplets. When temperatures are low enough, dew takes the form of ice; this form is called frost.
