Copic Creations Challenge ~ Coloring Embellishments


Yay!   Time for another Copic Creations Challenge.   We went with a simple challenge this week ~ coloring your embellishments with Copics.    It’s really amazing what you can color with Copic markers ~ brads, buttons, ribbon, thread, pearls, primas ….  just about anything and everything!   (just don’t tell the kids!)

We’ve also featured an Easter/Spring theme, with images provided by our sponsor DZ Doodles Digital Stamps.  They have an awesome selection of Easter images, along with every other holiday and theme you could imagine.   Hope you can take a peek.   I’ve used their Bowl of Lilies digital image for my card.



And, surprise, surprise!   Another easel card.   🙂    

This gorgeous digi image was printed out three times and colored with Copics.  One image was cut out and attached to another with dimensionals ~ I also cut out the two center lilies from the third image and attached those with dimensionals for a little extra depth.   I added some Fruit Punch Stickles to the centers.   The DP is from Webster’s Pages – Your Life. Beautiful and Bo Bunny – Flamingo Double Dot.

I unfortunately didn’t want to add too many embellishments to this image, so only the ribbon and gems have been colored with Copics to match the pink color of the DPs.    You can find an awesome tutorial on the Copic Creations blog showing how this is done.



So, you really MUST join us for this challenge ~ it’s an easy one!    All the details and the AWESOME Design Team samples can be found here.  

Phew!   I think that’s it for today!   



blog hop from Skipping Stones Designs.    We’ve got some awesome cards/projects to share that will all be auctioned off on EBAY later this week!   All proceeds will be going to the Red Cross Haiti relief fund.   More details will be available tomorrow.    🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!     Hugz ~ Mary

  8. Mary, this is gorgeous! You do the most stunning cards. Your coloring is awesome and I love the papers you put this with. I’ve got to make an easel card – too cool! Love those gems you colored. They add so much to the whole card. This was a cool challenge in that I now realize how much I can color and match to my image. I had not even thought of that before. Thanks for stretching us, again.
