La la land and face Contouring

Today I want to show you a card I made at the weekend 
I used this fab image from La La Land because I wanted to show you about face contouring when you colour with copics

This image doe'snt actually come with the white part of the eyes in black lines, but I wanted to give her a more contoured face so when colouring the face with copics didnt colour completely around the eyes but left some white I then did shadowing with the using E000 E00, E21, E11 around the eyes and by the nose this gives the face less of a flat look I then added some Blue just around the black of the eye gently with tip of copic marker I will do a tut for you in the next couple of weeks to show it better I have used this method of most of the stamps I use now I love the way it makes the face look more 3d'ish what a good word lol.
The papers I used are from HOTP Floral pad
Dies are magnolia Doohickey vine, magnolia leaf, and memory box small corner 
The image is matted with a spellbinders die
The flowers are from Mulberry Crafts and the ribbon is from the Range.
I added some white pearl drops around the picture. A tip for you when adding pearl drops when you put them on your card you end up with a bit of a peak, but if you gently flick the back of the card they will lose the peak don't do it to hard or they will either splat or end up on the wall lol just gently. 

So I hope you like my card for today
