Copics!!! WHOOOO HOOOOOO!!!
As you may be able to tell from the title I am very excited to finally own some copics!!! 72 in fact! This is my first creation with them. I was so overwhelmed and excited I didn't know where to start to I checked out the copic colour challenge blog the challenge this week was jade green (G00) Light pink (RV21) Pale blue (B32)...so that's where I started.
For me This was a back to front way of making a card, I normally choose my DP's first then colour..this time I coloured first...also at the mo I am going through one of those guilt fazes where I feel I must use up everything I have before I buy new stuff so all the cards I have made recently are from my very enormous pile of scraps...that is true for this card so unfortunately I cant tell you what the DP's are as I have no idea! I am quite pleased with the tag..It is actually one that for some reason I must have cut up so I only had a stub of it left..But I cut a little strip of what was left off and stuck it down in 2 pieces and then put the main image over it so it looks like a complete tag!! The layout is my own, as at the mo every time I follow a sketch it seems to go horribly wrong..so trying to do my own thing for a while in attempt to get my mojo back!
Really enjoyed using the copic's. I need to get used to the way they bleed..I have gone over the edges a little as a result of this, but I have tried to disguise it with some grey shadowing!..Its not too noticeable only if you look closely! (so don't ask me why I have chosen to show you a close up of my bad colouring!)
Thought I would also enter this card into the following challenges:
Alphabet - K is for Kid's
ABC - L is for layering
Just us Girls - stitching (real of faux)
Creative Belli Blog - Glitter or rhinestones ( I have added stickels to the little flowers (made with a punch) to give them a touch of sparkle.
