Mo's Digital Challenge 15 - a Color challenge


Our challenge this week at Mo's Challenge blog is to use the colors on the left.  If you don't have the exact color (which I didn't), just get as close as you can.  Be sure to visit the challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has come up with and play along for a chance to win a free digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil Too



For my card, I chose to combine two images, "You're my Best" Girl and Boy.  I used Adobe Photoshop Elements to remove the backgrounds and overlap the images.  I then printed it onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Faces - E000, E00, R20
Girl - V12, V06, V09
Hair - E11, E13
Shoes - C1, C2
Bunny - RV21, V06
Boy - B91, B93, B63, B66
Hair - E15, E19
Shoes - W1, W3
Puppy - BG72, Y18, E51
Shadow - W5

When I colored the puppy the boy is holding, I started with BG72 and hated it, so I added Y18, a little better but not quite.  So I added E51 on top and I liked the look.  It is kind of a mottled, well loved look. 

I used my Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant die for the corner accents, I just cut it into 4 pieces.  Added some DP from my stash and some pearls and I was done.  Finished size is 6" square.
