Copic Creations Celebrates!

We're celebrating our second anniversary here at Copic Creations Challenges....two years of bi-weekly challenges! If you were with us last year for our one-year anniversary you'll remember that we had multiple sponsors to help us celebrate, and we're happy to be celebrating with 12 sponsors this year! How cool is that!
The theme of our challenge is "Distressing - with Copics," and our images were graciously provided by Crafty Secrets. The image I colored is from a set called Garden Girls and I fell in love with this set when I saw it. If you remember my Easter Basket post you'll recognize the 2-5-7-10 box that I made into a "vase" this time for the greenery inside. The colors I used on her apron, (or pinafore,) were E40,41,42,43,44. The vintage images really lend themselves nicely to a distressed look. I used N1,2,3,&5 on the watering can and E97,99 on the clay pots. The box and handle were sponged with SU's More Mustard. Many of our DT members are offering blog candy, so be sure to check out their posts for this challenge. I am offering paper and stickers from K&Co. with a patriotic theme. The winner will be chosen and announced on our 6/15 post. We also want to welcome a new design-team member - Wendy Ramlakhan from Sugar-Pea Designs. Be sure to check out her link and welcome her to our team. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll join our celebration with a little distressing. Don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win some blog candy.
