Copic Creations Challenge #5


Happy Monday to you and can you believe we're on our 5th challenge with Copic Creations. The theme this time is transparencies. We are being sponsored by Gina K Designs, and we were graciously provided with a stamp set from Gina K to color. It's a beautiful set called Friendship Blooms with 3 images and 5 sentiments, but the one I used was the only one of the 3 that really lent itself to being transparent. I used Copic markers N1, YG91 and my blender for the water in the pitcher. I also added stems in the pitcher because the Gina K image does not include them inside the pitcher. I used my new Marrakech DP from Basic Grey, and "Vintage" Cuttlebug die cuts, cut in half, for the fancy background behind the image. I decided to keep the sentiment for the inside of the card because I thought it might take away from the image. I hope you like it. If you have Copics, check out the tutorials and play along. It's a great way to sharpen those coloring skills. Be sure to check out the cards the rest of the DT made. They're quite impressive. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day and week.

Karen, this is beautiful card. I love the image and the paper you chose. What really jumped out at me are the CB die cuts. I have that set and have never done anythint with that particular one but I will have to try your technique for them becasue it really makes a nice impact behind the image like that. I especially like how you added the stems in the pitcher. Very creative.
Happy June and here's hoping we have a mild hurricane season.
