Colour me untraditional - Mad For Markers

.
Hi Copic fans!!

Thursday again that means it's my turn to inspire you to reach for your Copics and create yourself something fabulous.

The current challenge over on the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog is to create a Christmas Card - using copics to colour with non-traditional Christmas colours.

I am so excited to see so many fabulous cards already submitted. You guys are amazing!! If you haven't already been over to check them out you should and there is still plenty of time for you to get your markers out and join in the fun.

For my card this week I have gone with one of Kenny K's fantastic images "Mistletoe"


Now, I'm pretty sure these papers are from Stampin' Up but I can't tell you what they are. But I'm sure when my wonderful Mum reads this post she will let me know.

But the basic colour combo I have used is Brown, Blue an Green (there's a bit of orange in there too :-D )

I've used a my Peach Spica Pen to add a little shimmer to the trim of her jacket and boots. Here's a photo to hopefully show it up a bit better.



Copics I have used for this image are:

Skin - E000, E00, E11 and R20
Hair - Y26, Y21, C1 and C3
Clothes and Boots - B91, B93, B97, (E53, E25 and Peach Spica Pen for trim)
Holly - B93, Y13 and R46

Head on over to the Mad For Markers Challenge Blog to get your daily dose of inspiration and to link up your Non Traditional Christmas card. I can't wait to see it!!
For all your Copic and related supplies head on over to Mad For Markers online store.


Mad For Markers post to Australia and New Zealand and stock a large range of Copic Markers, Blending Card, Masking Paper etc.

Michelle, I love these non-traditional colors on this card! So soft and pretty, with a hint of vintage charm. What a lovely combination!

What a fantastic card with non-traditional colours... look at that fantastic colouring and the shimmer. And such careful cutting out of the image too. SUPER card!

Glad that your garage sale aka market sale went off well... now go and spoil yourself with some more crafting goodies.

Hugs,

Monica
