Copic Colour Challenge

As posted yesterday I was lucky enough to win downloads from Charmed Crafts . This weeks Copic Colour , is a colour mix - great DT work and prize -(I used the colours closest as I don't have a full set - and rules allow you to :)).

I decided to make a card for DD birthday April for DS3 to give as she is going to be 15 she wants money and is a shopping queen!! I was spoilt for choice and as I still have our card to make wanted the shopping image for us and decided the very bright pink would look great on a ball gown!!

I coloured the image with copics and the bracelet I coloured with a metalic pen, white glistening card stock was embossed with Big Kick and texture plate, I then brayered a pink colorbox ink over the daisies and went round the edge of flowers with pink copic pen and around edges cut card stock too - love the way the purple absorbed into paper and gave a bit of a distressed look. I then cut alphabet and swirls from sisix dies and card stock.

Copic colors used


Lucky Me!!

I was lucky enough to win the Copic Colour Challenge and the prize was a download of my choice from Charmed Crafts!!

WOW was I spoilt for choice...... If you haven't visited I recommend a good browse!!
After much diliberating I chose the Holly and Maddison Download

My first card using this fabby kit will be entered into this weeks challenge!!

Thank you Karen and all the DT team
