Mad For Markers - Colour Challenge


Hi blogging Buddies how are you?

For those of you still thinking about putting your hand up for the Design Team call for the Make It Monday linky party you still have until tomorrow evening (Friday 15th April -AEST).

Today I have a card to share with you that I created for the current challenge we have over at Mad For Markers which is to use Copics from the following colour families on your creation

YR, RV and BG

For my card I have one of my newly aquired stamps from the Oliver and Amelia set "Happy Day" available over at Mad For Markers

Colours used for this image are
Skin - E00, E000, E11 & R20
Hair - Y21, Y23, Y26 & Y28
Clothes - RV91, RV93,RV95, YR61, YR65 and YR 68

These images are so much fun to colour I still have a couple I haven't inked up yet that I'm sure you will be seeing soon. Sadly though, I wasn't overly happy with this card in the end. You know how it goes, it just doesn't go right from the start but you keep perservering when really you probably should of just scrapped it and started again...............oh well. 

I do like the backround paper that I created though. I started off with a piece of whisper white cardstock and used a babywipe and Pumpkin pie ink and just kept sponging it till I got this effect.

Head on over to the Mad For Markers challenge blog to check out the current challenge and for some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.
Check out the new range of stamps from "The Greeting Farm" and "La La Land Craft Stamps" that Sammi has in store now.
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.
You can also check out the store blog and challenge blog for tips, tutorials and inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by

Michelle :-)

This is a very sweet card, Michelle. You did a great job on the coloring and the bling flowers add just the right 'extra' to it.
