CMN- coloring shadow around the image with Tutorial

Hello friends and followers,
Today I want to share my happy news with you. Yesterday i got the fabulous news I passed my European Copic Coloring Master exam! I'm so excited! 
Only 5 people in Norway own this title so I'm very proud of
Jeg er hoppende glad fortsatt, fordi i går fikk jeg beskjed om at jeg nå kan smykke meg med tittelen European Copic Coloring Master (ECCM). Som en av bare 5 i Norge må jeg si jeg er litt stolt! 
Veldig moro! Jeg deltok på en veldig inspirerende og morsom kursrekke hos Siv, du kan lese mer om programmet her: ECCP

I made this card for Copic Marker Norge, if you pop over to the CMN blog you can have a look at my picture-tutorial on coloring a shadow around the image to make it pop (in Norwegian). EDIT: See tutorial at the end of this post.
Dette kortet har jeg laget til CMN bloggen, hvis du tar en tur innom kan du se en trinn for trinn tutorial på hvoran man lager skygge rundt motivet med gråtoner.

Here's the card I made for the tutorial. The fancy folds on Tilda's dress are very much inspired by one of my favorite international copic coloring artists: Alyce. Thank you for the inspiration, hun! 

I used papers from Maja Design Vintage spring basic, some lovely lace and metal corner from the LLC store, and Magnolia Doohickey dies for the flower and branch. the flowers are WOC and the fab note clip is by Tim Holtz. The postmark stamps and the big roses are by Kort og Godt. Sentiment stamp is Norsk Stempelblad AS.  I used a Martha Stewardt punch on the edges and lots of distress inks as (sorry about the bad picture quality, I'm not friends with my camera today!)

Here's the tutorial in english. Norwegian version over at Copic Marker Norge
1. Get your colored image.

2. Start  using W5 in corners and creeks. It looks kind of harsh in the beginning- but don't worry, you will not ruin your image! 

3. Next get your W3, using the flickering technique, drag the dark color from W5 just a tiny bit longer with your marker.

4. Swithc to W1. Color from the W5, over the W3 and a little longer. Then go on to make a shadow around the whole image, maybe 1/4 of an inch using the W1. Be careful not to get any of the colors from the hair or clothes on your marker as it will smudge.

5. Next is your W00. Go over all edges around the image. Only from the W1 and out. 

6. Finally, use your Blender around the edges to smoothen. I usually use the flat end of the marker, use circle movements. Be sure to fill your marker before use to get a soft look.

Then I make the ground under her dress. I use the flat end of the marker. 

 7. Start with W5, Draw a thin line under her skirt and where I want the shadow to be.

8. Then on to W3. Drawing on top of the W5 an just a littlebit outside.

9. Next W1. Same thing. On top of the other markers and a little more.

10. Finally I use the W00 and blender.

Repeat the process a couple of time to get darker shadows.
If you find it don't blend well, go over the darkerst parts (W5) with your W00 to soften up. But be careful. If you use your lightest markers on top of the darker ones it will act as the blender and leave light dots.

Here's my finished Tilda in cotton dress with shadows. Copics used: 
Hud/Skin: E13-11-00-000-0000, kinn/ Cheeks:E95, Hår/Hair: E77-74-71-70-W7
Kjole/ dress: Rv95-93-91, V000, E71, W3
Skygger/ Shadows: W5-3-1-00, blender
