The challenge this week over at Stampin' for the Weekend is to use the color combo red and brown. I taught an Advanced Copic coloring class on Sunday, (I had a lot of fun, thanks ladies) and one of the images we used was Willow with a Sunhat from Whiff of Joy. Since I had colored her in shades of red, I thought she would be the perfect image for this challenge.
I began by stamping Willow on Cryogen white paper from Cutcardstock.com with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Copics used:
Face - E00, E02
Hair - E37
Hat - R83, R85, R89
Dress - R81, R83, R85, R89
Flowers - B21
Leaves - G24
Shoes - R89
I used R89 to color my ribbon, and I airbrushed the flowers and gems to match. The saying is from Hero Arts. I used my EK Success flourish punches for the swirly accents. Added some findings to the flowers and I was done. Finished size is 5 7/8" square.
My friend Sheila from Doubtfires Musings has created a beautiful card for the challenge. This is her last time as a contestant, she has been picked to join the Stampin' for the Weekend Design Team. I am so happy for her. If you have not visited her blog, you are in for a treat. I call her the "Queen of the Finishing Touches". She has quite the way with embellishments. Please stop by and wish her well in her new adventure.
