Copic Colour Challenge #8

This week, the Copic Colour Challenge #8 is being sponsored by Toodles and Binks. Each DT member was graciously given a stamp from Toodles and Binks to showcase this week! Thanks, Toodles and Binks! I was given this cute fairy called Celeste. I just love how regal she looks!

This week's colors were perfect for her. Although I have to say that I made a mistake with the green...I thought it was YG97, which I didn't have, so I used YG95! Totally blanked on that one, but I only used the green on her little shoes!

I used the Paper Pretties Weekly Challenge Sketch for this card. It's a larger card that measures 5.25" square. The base is SU's textured Wild Wasabi and the dp is their Raspberry Tart. I accented it with their retired Purely Pomegranate. The pearls are Hero Arts and I colored them with the RV29 copic marker to match. I love this copic marker technique. You can perfectly match any of your embellishments to your card. Lauren Meader just posted a video clip about this technique here that you might enjoy watching if this technique is new to you. The corner pieces were done with a Cuttlebug die that I always forget I have. I thought this image was deserving of a fancy flourish such as this! Celeste is glittered up with diamond stickles and the star on her wand was glittered with yellow stickles. I like the sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages set. It sort of looks like Celeste is about to grant a wish to someone! Oh, I hope it is me...I could use more stamps, Celeste! LOL!

Please stop by the Copic Colour Challenge blog and enter our challenge. Remember, if you don't have all or any of the colors, you may substitute. We just want you to have fun and post your creations! Thanks for stopping by!
