Copic Colour Challenge #9

Great colors this week for the Copic Colour Challenge #9, but a little challenging for me. I'd been putting this off until the very last minute because I just wasn't sure what I was going to do with them! But I think I made it work with this great Whiff of Joy guardian angel stamp called Matthew. I colored him with the three challenge colors (and some others for shading). He also is **SPARKLED** up with a Sakura Clear Star pen. I put some on his wings, hair and overalls. The red dp is from SU's Washington Apple and the green circles are from their retired Jersey Shore dp. The base is Always Artichoke. I tried a few things to accessorize this card, and finally gave in to the buttons. They were the right color and I just used some orange floss to tie them up. The layout is from a Paper Makeup Stamps challenge a while ago, but I had to turn it to accommodate my image. I really like the way my image fits this way.

I hope you can play the Copic Colour Challenge this week. We'd love to see your creations with this color combo. Just link your card with Mr. Linky so we can all see it and comment. Remember, you don't have to use all the colors and you can substitute, but you must use copic markers. Hope to see you there! Thanks for stopping by!
