Of Corset!

This image cracks me up!  Crack...egg--LOL!  The sentiment inside?  "Suck it up!"  LOLOL.  Okay, okay.  Enough!  When I saw this week's CASology, I immediately remembered this stamp set I'd gotten at Christmas.  Stylin' corset--check.  SCS tutorial on one-layer paper tole--check.  Practice shading with Copics--check.

I love how the embossing on either side of the corset really emphasizes the effects of one if you've got a little extra fluff.  The fluff has to go somewhere, right?  Notice I left the embossing rough to create the illusion of feathers.  I used the rounded end of a brush.

For coloring, I practiced shading to white on the background and using warm tones to shade the white of the chicken.  I really like how that turned out tho it's not easy to see in the pic.  I also practiced flicking for grass and little dots.  Oh!  And starting the green shading a bit up the legs so it looks further back--brilliant tip.
