SPDSS19 - Mail For YOU

There's a new SugarSketch
 I used a diagonal striped pattern paper for my background
I love how it looks like a post stripe when I left a 1/16" border. 

 For the vertical panel I cut a strip of hearts using the new
 Then I stamped this cutie using Happy Mail 
To color him I used the simple Copic coloring technique using one marker for each color, letting 
it dry and layering for shadow. Then I went back and used grays for deeper shadows. 
For the inside
I made an insert from copy paper and stamped using Happy Mail and Special Delivery

Wow! I didn't know you could get such great gradient shading with a single marker. I'll have to try it. I love this penquin. I really need this set.
