Hot! Hot! Hot!

Not our weather, but Jacque's sketch! Thanks, Jacque it is terrific and fun to work with! This is the Magnolia-licious sketch for July. I couldn't seem to get the sketch transferred here, but I hope you'll check it out on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog with the other designers creations!
I had to work the sketch a little bit to fit the large Magnolia row boat! And I used one instead of three embellishments in the upper right. My stamps are all from Diana at Magnolia-licious! She has great prices and special sales and surprises in your package if you belong to our Magnolia-lcious Yahoo group. The link to join is on the store site. Please use her search box to find stamps and if you have any trouble email her (or me!) and we'll help. Besides the rowboat, the sun, sentiment and, of course, the Tilda are from Diana's store.






I have written the colors down for this one and will give them below.
If you own some copics there is help out there for colors to put together. I've printed out Nicole Heady's color matches for her colors (she has them in a great format-doesn't she think of everything!?). BUT, I have not used any of her paper colors for this card. In other words, her copic matches are just great to use to match SU (or any other) colors! Thanks, Nicole!
Here's a link to what I'm talking about:
Papertrey Copic color matches. See the blue rectangle? click on that to get her chart ready for printing!
Anyway, here are the colors I used
skin E000, E01 and E93
BG10, BG11, BG18
RV10, RV04, RV17, RV19,
Y35, Y38, YR16
E55, E57 E59
W1, and W3
See what I mean? I used her colors as a starting point and changed where I needed.
My dp is Basic Grey, Lime Rickey (specifically-Shirley Temple) and my beloved Bo Bunny double dots with SU Pumpkin and Pomegranate and Black. My images are stamped on Papertrey white select. My sentiment is brushed with my 1" stencil brush in pumpkin and pomegranate.
Well, this may not be a patriotic colored card, but I am one grateful American today! God Bless America! Happy 4th of July to us all!
Have a great day!
Cheryl

This is absolutely gorgeous Cheryl! When I listed some of my favorite copic artists on my blog I forgot to mention your name because you certainly are one of my favorites! Your cards are always colored to perfection! I study your images only hoping to become half as good as your are at using copics.
Thanks so much for sharing your talent.
Big hugs,
Pam L.
