It's Saturday, that means Artful Sentiments Copic Color Challenge !!!

Isn't King Toad, from Dog Gone Stamps, the cutest, homely dude you have ever seen! He makes me smile every time I see him. I thought he was perfect for the copic challenge this week for Artful Sentiments by Kimm BT.

The copic markers we were to use were B05, YG23, YR04 and a purple V04 was my choice.

I colored the body with several shades of green with the medium green being YG23. I used the YR04 for the medium shading on his throat and tummy. The B05 and lavender are in the crown. I know it is a stretch but I always try to use all the colors :).

The card is pretty basic except for the button that I cut out with my Spellbinders vintage die cut using my Cuttlebug and then I brushed on Tim Holtz Distress crackle paint for an antique looking button. I tied the same orange narrow ribbon through the button holes as I had tied around the orange polka dot layer. Just that little bit of ribbon is not too much to keep this a masculine card.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT samples for this great color combination.

Have a great week-end and don't forget that tomorrow is Father's Day and since yesterday was also my husband's birthday we are having a double celebration for him and one of my granddaughter's is in town who has a birthday July 5th so we will be celebrating her birthday too.

See you all later,
