I’m so blessed that the owner of Purple Onion offers me up a couple Stacy Yacula stamps to play with to help get the word out. I just love her style! Garden Blooms is the name of the new release and you can find it all here.

While I like to do my shading using a light source – directional light – lots of folks do an awesome job without worrying one whit about where the lights are coming from. If you struggle with it (even after the Copic Jumpstart class), you can always just make your shading around the outside edges of the object. It can look fab even if it’s not realistic!

There are some other topiaries too….they’re so simple they make a gorgeous CAS card.
