Creating the look of pleats and folds with Copics

Hiya friends!

It’s Amy from A Thousand Sheets of Paper here, and I’m so excited to be joining this special celebration during Kristy’s Birthday Bash Month! There have already been so many great tips and tricks already posted with even more still to come… how awesome is that?

Today I’m going to share a video tutorial on how I create the appearance of dimensional folds and pleating on the clothing of stamped images, featuring the gorgeous new Gifty Gwen clear stamp from Some Odd Girl. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today and a BIG Happy Birthday to you Kristy! 🙂

    Oh Amy – this is fabulous hon! I love the gorgeous coloring you did on her dress and thanks for sharing your wonderful technique!! Beautiful job!

  • Donna says:

    Superb video Amy, thanks much. You make it seem so simple, and it is, I think something like this just take practice!! And knowing where the shadows go. Some stamp images are much easier than others. Seems like the main thing is establishing where the light source is, and being consistent. Loved it~~thank you again.

    Hi Amy!

    I love gwen, I really feel she looks like me enough to stamp her and write a short message from me. Anyway I am thrilled that I will have about 20 more days of these great Tuts. My coloring is already improving, it can only get better where I am at now! I second the nose idea, it would be nice to see it done by you pros!

  • Mimi says:
