I've been sick laryngitis then became a cold with lots of coughing and feeling yuk. I've missed so many of my favourite challenges but last night I was feeling good so did some copic colouring. I really wanted to go in a few different Challenges that we going with the one splash of colour idea and thoughts had been bubbling. I was going to use some different flowers but lacked the energy so
I got out my favourite Hero Art butterfly, stamped and cut out a few masks and did this
really easy layering.
I was so pleased with this last night. I did the greys in C-1, C-3 and C-5, I wanted the green to really stand out so went YG01, YG03 and YG25. I finished it off with some light grey shadow and went to bed happy.
Then I just had to play some more. I decided to add those lovely little white dots that Kelly and Kathy use so well. It just didnt work for me. I just had to do it all, then sit there looking t it and hating it and thinking of trashing it. Start again but I was not feeling so crash hot this morning so just removed what I could by fingernail then went over with the colours again and left it as that. I'm not happy with my end look but finished the card off and will use it and at some time will do it again just so I feel happy. I added a few green dots after trying out a number of different ideas, placed very strategically to cover random Copic drops. Liked it as it was and just couldn't decide on a sentiment and decided to leave as is for now and add sentiment when using. Could use for any occasion.
I am going to add this to A Blog Named Hero as this month is about to close and they are doing 'A Pop of Color' and you need to use their products so the butterfly fits right in.
Also there is a wonderful challenge at Scrapbook Boutique that is also closing soon and their mood board was perfect for this card. Finally CAS-ual Fridays CFC155 which is black and white with a Pop of Colour. I am hoping I am within bounds by using greys, if not I will remove from the challenge. Actually I just realised that this green is the green closest to Peridot so I should also enter the Simon Says 'Work It Wednesday' which is also closing soon.
Thank you for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
