New Challenge on the Block!

I stumbled upon a new blog when I was surfing a couple of weeks back and it's a copic color challenge blog. I love to color with copic markers and thought this blog was so interesting. It's called the Copics Colour Challenge, and they'll be posting copic color challenges weekly on Wednesdays! If you love to color with your copics, hop on over and check it out!

Today is their second color challenge and the colors they chose are: B02 Robin's Egg Blue, R05 Salmon Red, and YG23 New Leaf. These colors paired up nicely with SU's Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, and Ruby Red. I started with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. As I was pulling all these layers together, I wasn't sure how I was going to make this work, but when it was all finished I really liked it! I colored the watering can with the B02 marker, the frog with YG23 and the flowers with the R05. I did add a couple of other shades of the green and blue to get some shading. The centers were also colored with a copic, but then I added yellow stickles because I LOVE bling! I even added bling instead of brads! The vertical ruby red piece and the turquoise layer under the image were run through the swiss dots folder. The dp is from SU's retired Ginger Blossom, and the ribbon is a $1 find from AC Moore. The sentiment on the outside is from PTI's Pond Life. I thought that sentiment sounded like "Hippity Hop...Get Well", so that's the sentiment I went for on the inside with another piece of the dp. Another one done and it's time for bed! Don't forget to try out this new challenge! It's a different spin on the color challenges! Thanks for stopping by!
