Yay & Happy Friday everyone! I'm so happy it's the weekend--seems like this week has lasted forevah! I won't talk your ear off today cuz' this is gonna be another LONG blog post, hee hee! Please make sure and read to the end cuz' I've got a card to share, some Copic color info and of course BLOG CANDY #2 for ya!!
Today's card was made yesterday using this week's SCS Sketch 221 which was a fun if not a slightly challenging one! I used my new PTI set "Life" (which is a gorgeous set) and paired it with this yummy dp from My Mind's Eye (Laundry Line). I stamped the flower image a couple of times in PTI's aqua mist & SU's sage shadow--and then went back in with the small flower bud stamp in Palette Cream ink. The border was done w/ a Fiskars border punch and the pearls are Kaiser. I took my Diamond Glaze and globbed it on (technical term, hee hee) and while it was wet sprinkled some fine glitter on top. I really like it--and I think its so pretty!
**Edited to Add--because so many of you asked nicely, I have made this Copic Hair chart into a pdf file that you can download & print. You can find it on my sidebar under Copic pdf files--Hair colors!**
I have had so many people ask for hair color recommendations that I decided to color up a bunch of heads (lol) with my favorite color combo's for ya! This is my own personal colors that I use--there are many more combo's out there I'm sure, but I use these the most :o) (CLICK on picture to make larger) **NOTE--all my Copic Tutorials in both video & PDF form are on my right sidebar here on my blog**
