I bought this cute image called "Joy" from Mo Manning's digital pencil too store a long time ago. Finally got to ink it up! These cute nuns crack me up! Actually was thinking that I could have used it for the last Copic Creations challenge..coloring black. Either way..I used my Copics! Again, I used the "C's"or C1, C3, C5, C7 and C9. Just shading them all in . I work at a Catholic church so this card definitely will get put to use! :) Dp is from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly 6x6 pad and sentiment is computer generated then put thru a cb swiss dots folder.

Copic Creations challenge for Oct 15th..coloring "BLACK"

*Side note-due to family issues ..Copic Creations blog may be a little late in posting the new challenge..thanks for being patient! :).........

The new challenge over at Copic Creations is coloring black! I chose this cute little Rubbernecker image to color and my BG dp Eerie. Black is really not at all hard to achieve when using your Copics. Here all I shaded together was my C1, C3, C5 and a touch of C7. I left his boney front white then shaded around the whole image with my C1. I use C1 pretty much around all my images because it makes them pop. Also the shadow from this little ghosts feet is done with the C1. I sponged around him with SU night of navy then used my " Sharpie poster paint white" extra fine marker to make some stars in the sky. If you are looking for a great white marker this is the one found at just about any good art supply store. I think these are even better then just a white gel pen for a bolder look! the flower here is one I have had in my stash and while I was coloring, my "pug" was chewing it! After I looked at it I decided it was perfect!! So I colored it a little with some Copics and stuck it on! he he he.. guess she was just wanting to get crafty with me! :) I also used my SB die, MS punch and a Tim Holtz "jump ring"to tie a ribbon on. Our sponsor this challenge is ELLEN HUTSON, THE CLASSROOM a great place to get all kinds of inspiration!! So go take a look at what all the other talented dt members did and enjoy!!! tfl! :)

The "Perple" (purple) challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil Blog!

Still on that "Mo Manning" kick are ya??? ha! I AM....LOVE LOVE LOVE this Bella and Bronte skating!! Can this get any cuter??? I had a blast coloring with my Copics...used so many ..I didnt write them all down..But I can tell you that I am happy with Bronte this color and all I used was my W1, C1 and C3. The first time ever I talked to Mo she had emailed me about a card I made for someone who lost their old and faithfull dog and she told me that she lost Bronte. Then I saw her blog with only a few images on it. Wow..she sure has come a LONG way! Amazing how talented she is. :) This dp was sent to I dont know where it is from and I used MS punches once again. The sparkle is stickles. TFL! Have a great weekend!

This is my entry for the "Tag Tuesday " challenge over at Kard Krazy's blog! WOW..So happy to find her blog cuz I LOVE tags and couldnt wait to do this challenge! I picked up this little ATC pad at a craft show and I immediately thought to use this image! I used my MS punch for the branches and a brown scrap from a cb paper on the side. I guess I like doing these cuz it can come together so quickly and hey..immediate gratification! Oh..the challenge was Shabby Chic so I always think of off-white lace...why is that?? :) I suppose this would be a "Shabby Christmas Chic tag"--lol
