Copic Creations Challenge 10


While blog hopping this evening I came across Copic Creations Challenge Blog & as I currently am 'soooo in lurve' with my copics I couldn't resist a browse through the blog.

As well as setting challenges they also give fab copic tutorials & as a gal who's still very much a learner I just had to subscribe & have a go at this weeks challenge.

I paid a visit to my local craft shop, Click-on-Crafts, yesterday to stock up on more copics particularly the reds, yellows & greens I'd previously avoided.

After the initial excitement of seeing that they now stock Whiff of Joy stamps yeh!!! I queued enviously behind 2 women who were buying amongst many other craft items a FULL set of copics!!! well to say I was green was an understatement lol!! I commented on the fab BoBunny ribbons they were buying & we got in to conversation (as us crafters do lol!!) & they explained they'd bought everything to colour & embellish they're new stamp range.

Well . . . . . go on . . . . hands up who wouldn't have asked ' Oh . . . which stamp range is that ??' go on . . . you know you would!! I was only in the company of Laila & Lisa from Lilli of the Valley!! & as I'd already read about they're new stamp range on the blog I was like a giddy groupee!!

Anyway back to my card!!

The challenge at Copic Creations is Red and/or Pink & the prize is a full set of the new Pale Copics WOW!!I had a complete disaster colouring Anya's boots as the reds definately go a looong way & bled out of the sides of her boots so an out of bounds technique was called for!! & more practice with the reds.

The orange cardtock is SU Only Orange & the papers is Basic Grey Ice Cream. The button & flowers & ribbon are from my stash & the twine is also SU.

The sentiment is Cuddly Buddly stamped with Only Orange SU ink.

Thanks for looking.
