Here's the Scoop Colour and Sketch Challenge

Wow, third post today...what a nice change. Usually I am out of town or busy with commitments, but today I was able to get three posts done, plus a bulletin board display for church. Nice!!! It was nice not to be I was able to watch the hockey game too.....crappy game though. Detroit is blowing Pittsburgh away 5-0 by the end of the 2nd period, so decided to post now during the third period.

Anyway, this post incorporates Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge and Lauren Meader's Sketch Challenge.

This is only my second time playing around with copics. The first time I used them was the other day on my Father's Day card..but I haven't posted it yet, as I don't want my father to see it just yet. So I am still getting the hang of blending, shading, etc. As you will notice I had to move the sentiment from Lauren's sketch to the other side of the card. I had a little mishap with blending...more like a smear into the cream wallpaper and I needed to cover up her feet. However, I do think the card turned out well considering. I used SU Chocolate Chip; SU Purely Pomegranate; and a cream colour to match Dawn's colour combo. The only thing that doesn't match the colour combo is the ice cream itself...but a girls got to have her Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.
Here's the Scoop Ingredients:
Stamps: MFT Here's the Scoop
Paper: SU Chocolate Chip; SU Purely Pomegranate; Cream scrap paper
Ink: sentiment is SU Purely Pomegranate; colouring done by copics...see picture below
Accessories: Martha Stewart punch; brads; ribbon; pop dots; redline tape
These are the copic colours I used.
Thanks for looking!!
