Copic Creations Challenge-Pinks and Reds

Good morning and happy summer Saturday! It's going to be another hot one here in Western New York! Love it! (but, I can't BELIEVE that it's mid August already! How did that happen?) Our Copic Creations Challenge this time is to color pinks and/or reds and hearts. I used pinks, as I think you can tell! You have got to head right over to the blog to see the beautiful creations posted by our Design Team!
But wait, there's more!
Our sponsor is Susana's Custom Art and Card Design!
She has a fantastic store and she ships REALLY fast for those "gotta have it" artists!

She is donating a great prize, too! A collection of the 12 new colors of Copic Sketch Markers!! Wowzie! (I have them and really do use them a lot in blending to keep my highlighted areas.) I really recommend you play this challenge with us, they are worth $60.00!
This card is already in Susana's hands 'cuz today is her birthday!! Happy birthday, Susana!
I'll mention that my sister has taught me to make these crocheted flowers! I have not tried it with embroidery floss yet because the fibers separate so much. But I've made several with crochet thread and I love them! You really can whip one up in under 10 minutes! It takes me that long (or longer) to look through my flowers to choose one! LOL! If you want the directions, please leave a comment and I'll look them up on Nichole Heady's blog again and post it for you.
The copic colors I used are as follows:
R0000, R20, RV32, RV34, R37
E000, E01 and E93
E55, E57, E59
B41, B45, B37,
Y21, E55, E37
YG01, YG06, W00, W1
You can still enter to win TWO digital downloads (of your choice) from Angel's Landing! Please see this POST

Thanks for visiting! YOur comments mean so much to me!
Have a great day!

The crocheted flower is eye catching layed onto the ginghnam pattern. Tt makes for a soft paisley touch. Always looking for ways to use theses little crochet flowers!
Would love to try my hand at doing them myself! Inky dinky

Beautiful card, Cheryl...that's such a sweet image! I have no clue how to crochet so it would take me 10 days instead of 10 minutes, lol!!

Sharon Caudle said...

Hi Cheryl, Super cute card as usual! Sooner or later I have to get some Copics (I just use pencil crayons). I would love to know how to make those pretty flowers. You're right the summer is flying by, before you know it school will be starting & I'm not ready for that cuz you see I'm a school custodian. Have a great day, Nancy Parker
