Copic Colour Challenge 36

Sorry for the slightly late post, I've just had Spinning and I'm cream crackered! Really need to have a kip now, sooooo tired! The good news is that after today, I'm off for 5 whole days - woohoo!

Right, down to business. It's Wednesday, which means that it is Copic Colour Challenge time! This week we are sponsored by the wonderful InStyle stamps and the lovely Virginia has provided the DT with images to use - cool huh?! The colours this week are G99, V17 and YR68....

This card started as a total disaster and was then rescued slightly when it became it's current state! To start with, I had nothing in the top right hand corner. I kinda thought something was missing but decided less was more. Ali then said, "it needs something in the top right hand corner". Grrr.... So I added a sentiment. DISASTER! Looked blinkin' awful. So I ended up ripping it (and half of the Doodlebug paper) off and covering the remaining mess with this huge bow ensemble! The things we go through for our art eh?!

Goodie List........
Stamps: Sasha by InStyle Stamps.
Paper: Doodlebug.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Embellishments: Ribbon, embroidery thread, button and gems from stash.

Hope all you Copic users are able to join us this week!

Such a fab card Stacey. So girly! I often have such crafting disasters and end up covering torn paper with other things too! It's a good job no one picks our cards to bits otherwise we'd be in real trouble! Lol!
Enjoy your days off, you lucky thing. Only 2 days unitl my days off & I'm going to a craft fair on sunday so something to look forward to!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~

This is fabulous! I don't know what you were worrying about, and I'd never think the bow was out of place! (I've got this image too and thought about using it instead of the skiing one but my printer ran out of ink! Ha ha!) I love how you've coloured her, especially her dress! Gorgeous papers too!
