Papertake Weekly...and Copics!

Just a quick one today so that I can post this card in time for the Papertake Challenge sketch. Ali is waiting to get on the PC so I had better be swift!


I made this card using a gorgeous Hangler and Stanglar image that my friend Kirsty sent to me. Isn't it the cutest?! I coloured with..... Copics. I'm afraid that I have sidelined my ProMarkers at present as I cannot seem to get any depth to my colouring, to the point that I just gave up in the end and purposefully coloured everything flat. So, I decided Copics were for me. They arrived in force yesterday and I LOVE them. Although, my pinks seem a little bright..... I'm wondering....what are everyone's favourite pink Copic combos?

So anyway, back to the card. The papers are Bo Bunny 'Smitten' which are gorgeous as they have a wonderful shimmer to them. The oval sentiment tag comes courtesy of a Cuttlebug die and the sentiment itself is made of Doodlebug rub-ons.

As you can see, I had to change the sketch slightly as it just didn't look right all on one side.....hope it still counts in the challenge!

So..... what do you think of the colouring?! An improvement? I really hope so as I was getting so fed up with it being so flat :o( Ooh, by the way, I must say a massive thank you to Rach as I have been obsessively stalking her blog recently, looking at her Copic selections for each and every card! Thanks so much for being so inspirational Rach!
