I have been very productive the past few days and that's with me going to bed earlier now that I have to be up early for school and kinder drop offs!!
Last year I went to The Picture to Page Craft show in geelong and did a quick workshop using copics and I fell in love with them.... For a long time after that i didn't think about them but then Bec over at Bizzy becs was having a copics sale so decided to purchase a few colours in consultation with Bec. Once I received them I think I only coloured with them once and just didn't like the reults and decided it was all too hard!! In the mean time my friend sam over at sew many crafts started buying Copics and colouring her images with them and I just love the way the images look!! She does such an amazing job!!! So anyway, after so long not using them I decided to give them a go and in the past week I've been mucking around with the few colours I have trying to make an image look half decent. And last night I coloured Tilda and I think I am quite happy with how it turned out!!. I'm not sure if I have used them the way i am supposed to and not sure if the skin colour is right but all in all I think it looks ok. I didn't use lighter and darker colours I just used the one colour and kept going over it so got darker and lighter areas! My other dilemma of course was I only a have a very limited colour selection so made it hard to try and put a card to gether but in the end I am so happy with the way my card turned out.
So the ingredients for my card are:
Papers - Magnolia
Ribbon and Lace: Magnolia
Brads - Magnolia
Doilie - Bizzy Becs
Stamp: Magnolia coloured with copics (Skin - E00, E02, Dress - B32, Flower - R20, R24, Hair - E31,E57, Shoes - E57) and H20's (socks and flecked through hair)
I punched out three daisy's and and put them together to create the flowers.
So i Guess you want to see my card!! LOL!!
