The first Challenge is Copic Oz #12 - Embellish This. I have coloured my embellishments to match my paper using Copics. I coloured in some cream coloured star brads (not easy to get into those corners), a piece of white ribbon (voila its now blue) and I made my own background paper for my Happy Birthday sentiment. I made the paper by using 4 different coloured copics and ruling lines .. its hard to see in the pictures but in real life it blends in quite nicely. I used a blue spica pen to trace over the stamped writing .. just for a bit of sparkle.
The second challenge is iCopic Weekly Challenge #39 - Pastels. I found this quite difficult because I have not mastered blending as yet ... so I have to keep adding more colour .. and of course this makes my image darker. But I would still call it pastel shades.
Challenges I am entering this card in are:-
Oh wow! I think I just learnt how to add a link! I'm very pleased with myself now .. managed to create a card to enter into two challenges and learnt something new ....... patting myself on the back :)
