My First Copic Colour Challenge

This card was designed for the Copic Colour Challenge #51 which features Copic colors R29, RV23 and B12. I'm using some of the last pieces of my Pink Paislee Cupid Collection paper which matched beautifully with the colors in this challenge. And yes...you have seen this layout on a previous post using my Barefoot Tilda image with a chocolate satin ribbon! I had already sewn the card base together when I saw the colors for this weeks color challenge and knew it would be a perfect fit.

I had such fun with these beautiful colors but I just couldn't figure out the best way to incorporate the R29...so I used my R29 marker and airbrushed some shimmery cream ribbon! You just gotta love the airbrush for altering the color of the embellishments!

I've also been watching the Copic tutorials posted by Suzanne J. Dean. What an inspiration!! You can view her tutorials here. She is such an amazing talent and all of her projects are simply extraordinary! I've taken the Copic certification class but I have so much to learn and she willingly shares her tips and techniques.

Here's a list of the additional Copic colors: E000, E00, E25, E31, E33, E35, E47, E50, E53, B0000, Rv0000, R20, C1 and of course my Colorless blender.

Thanks again for stopping by!
