A little Copic fun...

So I sat down with my Copics and had to try some skin tone coloring!  I just got E000, E00, E11 and E02 this week so I had to try them out!  I found this adorable little image and she was begging to be colored!  (Love love all this new PTI July release stuff!   See the background?  That is the new Impression Plate! And the blue background is the notebook die!  So fun!) 


I don't think I did too bad, although I know I have lots to learn!  I gave her just the slightest pink cheeks with E02.  Barb gave me this tip!  Thanks Barb!


So, next I had to try out some new colors on her and make her a blond....


I think this turned out to be a fun card!  I just love that Ripe Avocado paper and the Simply Chartreuse Ribbon.  They match so well!   (It looks like I didn't blend her face very well in this pic!)


Loving the Copics for sure!  It's really alot of fun when you can actually get them to blend like they are supposed to!  LOL!  Wanna see a super FAB  Copic card?  Go HERE!  It will knock your socks off!

Have a great day!

Again, such simplicity and beautiful color combinations! I can't help but think of my beautiful 5 grand-daughters with their little pigtails.
