Olive and Oak

I was tempted once again by Marcella Hawley’s digital stamps over at Power Poppy and this is the end result. Used LOTS of Copic colors to achieve the blending which added a lot of punch to the image. The next time I color this image, I might blend the olives differently. Instead of using multiple shades of cool gray, I’d probably try to blend from dark gray into shades of olive green to add a little more dimension.
