Copic Creations DT

Here is my second posting for the day - this one is for Copic Creations where the challenge this time is MONOCHROME.

We did have a little help from our SUPER talented sponsor for this challenge . . . Katie Cotton! Katie is the creator and owner of the stamp company Paper Makeup Stamps. I hope you have the time to visit her store, she has some awesome images that are perfect for Copic coloring. Everyone on the CC Design Team has created some true masterpieces using this technique and images graciously supplied to us by Katie from Paper Makeup Stamps.

I chose the image 'Moody for Fashion' and used the cool greys to colour her - C00, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7.
I did think her hair looked a little stark because of the monochrome colouring so I added a few highlights with a white gel pen.



The papers are a mixture of Graphic 45 (the background paper) and Bo Bunny, the one the image is mounted on and the stripe. I used a Spellbinders fancy tag either side of the image, two corners from an EK Success corner punch, a few pearls and some ribbon from my stash and that was it - twice this week, not a flower in sight.
