Color Me Copic's ~ First Challenge


Over at the Color Me Copic blog... the very talented Rach has put together a wonderful tutorial on colouring your images in black & white and to celebrate we thought we would also have the theme as a challenge for all of you too. The Greeting Farm has very generously provided a fantastic prize too!


Here's my sample I thought these beautiful cheekies would suit the black and white theme very well. I decided to opt for old type photographs, but instead went for a Polaroid look! Which I have created by cutting my white cardstock with a square nesty and the picture part is a rectangle! Enhanced the aged look with a little distress ink!


I have created the tickets by stamping up the ticket in a line, with black ink directly onto kraft, trimming the sides and my crop-a-dile came in very handy for the holes. I've used the viva decor pearl paint using the Bazzill jewel template for the line of pearls.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: pink paislee: queen bee;
Stamps: The Greeting Farm: Cheeky beauty; Cheeky glamour; Inkadinkadoo: paperwork greetings;
Ink: Memento & Archival: black; Copic: markers*;
Ranger: distress inks: antique linen; Viva Decor: pearl liner;
Dies: Spellbinders nestabilties: squares; rectangles;
Other: Bazzill jewel template; crop-a-dile; 3D foam;
 
*Skin: E40, 41, 43, background and outfits: W-1, -3, -5, -7, 100 and the colourless blender!!!
  
I've based my card on the Friday sketchers #110, although I made this card the other day I just haven't had the chance to post it! so, hope you pop back tomorrow for a fabby Club Anya & Friends sketch!
