Color Throwdown Challenge

I finally completed a Color Throwdown Challenge! I think I did one when they first started the challenges, and I tried to do one two weeks ago, but I just couldn't get the colors to work for me. But this one was easier: basic black, brocade blue, and real red.

I also used this sketch by Ana Wohlfahrt for Taylored Expressions. I started with this adorable image from High Hopes. I received it from Dawn (aka flowergal36 on SCS). She sent me a few images a while back and I'm slowly getting around to coloring them. When I saw this image, I thought the jeans could be brocade blue and her shirt red, so I was all set. I used copic markers to color the image and put glitter on the wings. When the card was sitting on my counter, they just sparkled so incredibly I took a close-up picture of it. The picture is a bit blurry, but the sparkle can be seen.

The little hearts on the teapot were created using the tip of my copic marker. I just saw Marianne Walker, the copic guru, do a tutorial on making them on her blog, I Like Markers. I was just there, and the link to the video wasn't working, but that's where I saw it either yesterday or today. The hearts were punched using a Creative Memories punch, and the sentiment on the white heart was created using PTI's Beautiful Blooms and Mixed Messages. The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment and the hearts and sentiment on the inside are from Verve's new sets, Hearts on Fire and Hundred Hearts.

I'm on the mend from being sick with bronchitis. I didn't go to work for two days and still don't have my voice back. I'm going in tomorrow, but don't have to teach because we are correcting the English Language Arts (ELA) tests the kiddos took a couple of weeks ago. My poor students have had their routine interrupted for three days! I'll have to do something nice for them next week because I've heard they've been very good for the substitute! Well, off to bed so I can get a good night's rest! Thanks for stopping by!
