Copic Creations ~ We’ve got the BLUES!


Hello my long lost friends!    It seems like ages since I’ve posted.    Actually …  it HAS been ages!!    I’ve really missed you all.   

This card is for today’s  Copic Creations challenge  ~ Copic coloring of 

. . .  BLUES  . . .

     I think between the Bs, BGs and BVs there are more blue toned colors than any other in the Copic family.   If you’d like to see the always amazing Design Team’s favorite blue combos, be sure to pop over to the challenge blog.   You’ll definitely be inspired!

Our sponsor this week is the one and only Sugar Nellie!!    I seriously LOVE, love, love these images from the Simply Adorable collection, now available as DIGITAL images from Sugar Nellie 

And, after packing ALLLLL my craft supplies last week …  believe me, digis are SOOOOOOOO much easier to pack!   LOL  



This “simply adorable”  little girl is a Sugar Nellie Simply Adorable digi image called Connie.   She truly was a pleasure to color ~  I love images like this where the artist supplies lots of shading lines which really makes coloring them a JOY!     

***Edited to add:    The lovely background image is called Daffodil Dell  ~  a digi image from Make It Crafty!!

I hope you’ll join us for this challenge by including some BLUE Copic colors in your card ~  YOU could be the lucky winner of FOUR stamps from Sugar Nellie!!    All the details can be found HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!    Saturday is “moving day”!!

  24. Mary, this is just amazing. Your coloring just blew me away. I especially love her hair. How many colors did you actually use on her hair. Can you separate the brown tones you used into hair and other stuff for me? I would love to try to duplicate that gorgeous hair!! Thanks.
