Copic Creations, Sketch and Stash and a bit of Exciting news

Copic Creations has feathering as their theme this time. The only problem I have with Copic Creations is finding the right image with which to fulfil the requirements. I decided this poor little neglected Manga girl from Funky Kits fit the bill as I could give her some a really funky hair colours. I also followed the sketch at Sketch & Stash and my neglected stash is the Manga image, the downloaded papers and the flowes.

A close up of the hair

I coloured the image with Copics (naturally) and cut her 'out of the box' with circular nesties. The papers are an ancient download, the swirls cut with a BossKut die, the flowers were bought at my local haberdashery stall back in the UK, the sentiment is Lily of the Valley I think (correct me if I'm wrong) and the rest is from stash. I find it strange that I took this photograph using a daylight lamp. the background is actually white yet the blue of the card as made it look pink/mauve.

Now a little bit of news:- I was chosen as one of the top three at Stamping for the Weekend, not only that I have been asked to be GDT for the month of March.
I'm thrilled to bits and highly honoured to be chosen and can't wait to work with the fabulous team of DT's.

Love the hair! I looked at that challenge but decided that I wouldn't even attempt it lol. Most of my copics have run out anyway so I don't have much colours to choose from but even if I did, I don't think I would of tried it after looking at the tutorials, it looks quite difficult to do. Hats off to you though, you did a fab job!!
Congrats on the guest DT spot and making top 3! :)
