Copic Challenges

Good evening.  This will be my first card that I have entered into two challenges.  Not sure exactly how to do it .... so I hope its correct :)

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 :)

Thankyou to all the beautiful comments for previous blog entries ... it really encourages me.  And thankyou to those who wished my gorgeous Daughter a Happy Birthday and a Get Well Soon, it must of helped as today she was much better :)
