No. 10 Reds & Pinks Copic Challenge Creation

Hi ya'll! How's your day going? Mine...rushed! I'm in and out of the house finishing up getting the kids stuff ready for school. Yesterday I finally got Lizzie's uniforms...I almost cried...lol. Oh well...she looks adorable if I say so myself! I'll take pics soon. :D

Anywho...I made this card in chapters...lol. I did the coloring at my MIL's house on Sunday and the card yesterday. Needless to say I was at a loss for a layout but finally threw this together! I made it for Copic Creations Red, Pink, & Hearts challenge. The challenge was to use reds or pinks in the coloring. I've been practicing with the Copics because I paid too much to just shove them to the side like LV did. Not to sound like a hypocrite...but I'm actually liking these more than my Prismas. *GASP* I know...I swore by them but by using Copics...I see now why people swear by THEM! They ARE much easier to blend because of the brush. Anywho...I tried at my coloring a bit different...I used multiples of the same color families. You can click on pics for larger view. Colors are as such:

hair: E47, E38, E15, & E35
clothing: R59, R46, R43, & R20
skin: E02, E00, & R02
others: C3, E50, & 0

Supplies:
CS/DP: CChip, RHRed, PPirrouette, & Bella Rose DP
Ink: CChip
Stamps: Kiki La Roue digi (ATS) & Hanna sentiments
Embellishments: sheer chocolate & pink grograin ribbon
Others: eyelet border punch, Swiss Dots CB folder, hearts die, & lables 1 Nesties

Hugs,

This is absolutely beautiful Gabby! I love Copics, too, more now that I took a basic class. They are great for blending. Not that I'm kicking my Prismas to the curb - they are outstanding for bold color!

I love the new Kiki La Rue girls - way cute and you did a super job with the challenge.

Adorable card and your coloring is gorgeous!! I started out with Prisma's too, and while I loved them and would never put them down, I love the juiciness of my Copics! There are still a few colors in Prisma's (well, one in particular!)that I wish Copic had...:-)Traci

I love it Gabby! I love my copics too, but I've never used prismas so I wouldn't be able to compare. I love your coloring. I can't wait to get more colors, and reds are at the top of my list! I have some on order right now.

OMGosh I am sooo happy you are back in full swing! THIS is the bomb Gabby! :D Don't talk too loud, the prismas will rebel and mark your craft room up while you sleep. ;) You did such an amazing job with the coloring, and wow - how bold and talented you are that it is even more flawless when you click on for a closer view. haha! So happy to see you my dear, I am feeling the same way about Maali going to Kindergarten. Sniff sniff..
