Copic concrete and grass

Today I thought I'd share a simple tutorial on how I drew the sidewalk and grass on the card below. Using a Copic multi-liner pen and a straight edge, draw in a sidewalk.
Continue until your sidewalk is the size you want it.
Here's what mine looked like when I was done.
Start with a Copic C7 and go around all the edges.
(I use the chisel tip for all of these steps)
Next, blend in C5 around the edges.
Finally, fill in with C3.
Easy-Peasy!

I usually like to add a little grass also.
To do that, I make a thick line with the chisel tip of YG17.
(This will help avoid white spaces in between your blades of grass)
Choose a darker shade of green, and make small strokes with the brush tip.
Then fill in with various shades to finish off.
Here's what my finished image looks like.
I really hope this was helpful! Give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by.
