Welcome to Copic Challenge #1



Welcome to the first Copic Challenge, and the theme for our first challenge is "Faces." The image I chose is from Crafty Secrets' "Baby Girl" set. The colors I most often use for faces are E00 (Skin White) and E02 (Fruit Pink). I went back over parts of the face and neck on the mother with my Blender pen to lighten her skin just a tad. I used R14 (Light Rouge) just very lightly on their lips to add a wee bit of color, and I darkened their eyes and eye area with my Black Multi-liner pen, 0.1. The rest of the colors I used can be seen in the photograph of the markers. My DP's are from Basic Grey's "Euphoria" and the CS behind the image is Lovely Lilac from SU! I used my Kaiser Lavender half-pearls and a dotted swiss ribbon and Prima flower accent. I hope you can join us in the challenge and be sure to check out the beautiful creations by the rest of our Design Team. Our challenge is being sponsored by 7 Kids College Fund and they are offering a fabulous prize, so be sure to head over to the Copic Challenges blog and check it out. I'm looking forward to seeing many fabulous entries. Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy April and Happy Coloring.
