Artful Sentiments Weekly Copic Challenge #17

Well, it is Saturday and that means Kimm BT's Artful Sentiiments Copic Challenge for this week.

I had a little trouble with this one, I am not really a pink person as a main color. I guess that is why they call them challenges :) The challenge was to use R20, R83, RV00 and another pink of your choice, Okay, I had R20 R32 and BV00 and that was as close as I could get. I have a Copic Color Chart so the colors aren't as far off as the numbers may appear.

Here is the card that I came up with:

I used My Cuppa Joe stamp set from GinaK Designs, designed by Rupa Shevde, that I just love.

I made this a long card that would fit in a business size envelope. This is a size that I really like but very seldom do. Maybe I was just too lazy to cut my stamped images apart but we'll go with the first reason :)

I colored the cups using the copic gradiant technique. I used the two pinks and the lavendar all on each cup. I then mounted the cup panel on lavender cs, punched a border along top and bottom of a hot pink piece of cs and placed it on an angle on the pink checked dp that was sponged with Tim Holtz worn lipstick distress ink and dusty concorde distress ink.

I don't use my large spot eyelets very often but they are so easy to set with the crop-o-dile so I decided to get carried away with them. The sentiment was punched out with the SU scalloped circle punch and after tying a ribbon under the main panel, my card was complete.

I used all the colors, yeah me! Check out the other DT girls blogs( their blogs are listed on my sidebar) and see what they came up with for today, I know you will like what you see, they are a very talented bunch. There is a new DT Member, welcome Shelley that I still need to add to my DT blog list, sorry Shelley :)

Have a great day. I am off to Bailey's 2nd Birthday party at my daughter's house and then I will go to work tonight.

See you Sunday
