Since we are showcasing Copic markers at ABC Toys and Crafts this week, I grabbed my Sarah Kay stamps.  I can't think of any stamps I love to color more than these cuties!  This is My Sweet Lili.  I stamped her onto Cryogen paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  Copics used:
Lili - RV10, E000
Hair - E21, E25
Dress - E00, E01, RV10, RV11
Bow and dress trim - G40
Bear - E71, R20
Bear's dress - BG72
I knew I wanted to use my Basic Grey Capella paper and began coloring Lili's dress with E01.  A nice soft peachy color that matched the shading on the DP but I got a little heavy handed when I blended it with E00 and it was far too orange for the paper.  Not to worry, that is the beauty of Copics, they are dye inks and can be layered to create new colors.  So I added RV11 and RV10 on top of the previous colors and you see the end result.  A perfect matching color.

I airbrushed E71 around the image before removing it from my Spellbinders Labels Eight die.   I hand cut the brown layer behind the die.  I laid the die I used to cut the image, flat side down, onto my card stock and traced around it.  I cut it out and a perfect copy about 1/8 inch larger than the original.  Finished size is 5 x 7
 inches.
