Just For Fun

Hi there blog friends ~
Every once in a while, I like to color with my Copic markers, and after receiving a Gift Card from Whimsy Stamps on their recent blog hop, I picked up this sweet image called 'Mary', designed by Sylvia Zet.



Suffice it to say that this style is way off the beaten path for me, but it's fun to step outside of your comfort zone sometimes! I outlined the image with B0000 and colored her in with several YR markers. The little lamb was colored in with C1 and C0 (gray), and I gave them both pink cheeks with R20. The orange flower is from an old package by Prima, and the roses are from Kaiser Craft. The die cut grass is from MFT and the butterflies are Memory Box. Lastly, I used my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen on the butterflies, flowers and Mary's pocket.

It so happens that the challenge for this week at Addicted to Stamps and More is to 'Make Your Mark', and since I used my Copic markers for this image, I would like to submit my card. 

Well, that's it for me today...I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Easter celebration with family and friends! Thanks so much for stopping by ~

Oh my WOW! This is beautiful Barb!! I had no idea you had such amazing Copic skills! Maybe it's not your usual style, but you should do it more often if you like, because you do such a beautiful job with this type of card!!
