Copics Colour Challenge #4

Are you ready for another Copics Colour Challenge? This week we have a great color combo chosen by our DT member Karen. She chose BG13-Mint Green, Y08-Acid Yellow, and V06-Lavender. Great choice, Karen!

When I went to my color chart, I realized I didn't have BG13...so I called my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, and they came through for me with the last BG13! Thanks, Sharon!

When I put these colors together on paper, they matched really well with PTI's Aqua Mist and Plum Pudding. I used SU's Summer Sun for my mat on the image. Speaking of the image, isn't she just the cutest fairy? She's Elle from Paper Makeup Stamps, a fairly new company. There are eight fairies so far in her line and I have them all, that's how much I'm loving them! You can see them used on cards
here and here on my blog. Elle looks like she is ready for Easter! When I saw these colors, I knew Elle would be the perfect choice!

I used several copics in addition to the Challenge colors to get all the shading just right. They are all posted in the Recipe below. The dp is PTI's from the Guidelines collection. I ran the Aqua Mist layer through the D'vine Swirl cuttlebug folder. It had the same sort of whimsical feel to it as the image had. I also used PTI's satin swiss dot ribbon in Aqua Mist and Plum Pudding. If you have never purchased this ribbon, I'd say get it! It's fabulous and is so soft to the touch! So worth the price, too! The flowers started out white. I didn't have flowers that matched, so I colored the flowers with BG10 and V06 copic markers. That is what is so fabulous about these markers...you can color virtually anything with them to match your project. I saw Linda Duke from Linda's Works of Heart color a piece of ribbon in seconds recently! So this means I need more white flowers! I added shimmer to Elle and the flower with Sakura's Clear Star gelly roll pen. Here's a closeup of the flower so you can see how this pen really shimmers and how well the flower took the color!


Well, that's it for me today. Please stop by the Copics Colour Challenge blog and play this week.
To play, all you have to do is enter a card on the Copics Colour Challenge blog using these colors (BG13, Y08, and V06). If you don't have all of them, use what you have, but you must use copics! Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you create!
