Scary, huh? I made this card on the weekend. I had bookclub last night. No stamping for me! Just good friends, good wine, good food and good conversation!
This adorable image is from Whipper Snapper. It was so fun to color! I used my copics and will list the colors below.
I am just crazy about orange with aqua right now! The card base is Soft Sky stamped in Papertrey's Aqua Mist with the CHF background. The half layer is the beautiful Bo Bunny cardstock. It's 12x12 and heavy. One side is solid and the other is these wonderful tonal dots. It comes in MANY colors! Then I matted my image with a layer of Baja Breeze and Pumpkin Pie. The image layer is PTI white select. The ribbon is also from Papertrey Ink.
As I said I colored with copic markers. I used the following:
Sign and post:E00, E31, E33, E37
Grass: YG03, YG25
Cat: C-3 and C-5
Pumpkin: Y06, Y08, Y17 and YR16
Ghost and around image: BG10, Bg72
I really blend the heck out of the background coloring to smooth it out.
In general the idea with copics is to saturate your paper with the colors. You can often see color on the back of my images. I usually color in small circles when the area is large enough.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

So cute, Cheryl! I have this image too & LOVE it ~~ he's just one of the cutest ghosts I've ever seen. I've been working with Copics for about a year & a half now, & I still can't even come CLOSE to the amazing job you do!
