Copic dot coloring for Lawnscaping Challenge

Hello crafty friends!

Hope your all having a lovely week so far. It's kind of rainy here but what a perfect excuse to craft. I've kind of lost my card making mojo lately. I feel as though it is the same as writers block but for card makers but I'm hoping a weekend full of crafting coming up will fix this.
I did manage to pull together a card for the Lawnscaping - Try a new technique challenge.

The technique that I decided to try was "Copic dot coloring" which I was inspired by from this video from the very talented Jennifer Mcguire.
I think it looks so cute with critters but I decided to try it with this tree from the Let's Play stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I like how it gives the image a different look.

This was a pretty simple card. I die cut a piece of white card stock and stamped my images and then colored with Copics using mainly dots. I colored with the lightest color first and then just dots for the rest of the coloring.
I layered this panel with some vellum and some patterned paper I had on hand.

Over all it was a simple technique but I think I may try it again with some cute critters. 

All supplies listed below. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!:)
