Suzanne Dean challenged us to create a Copic colored card now that we've had a few of her tutorials. Here's my submission.

This image is a digital image from Tiffany Doodles called Mushroom Bug House. I'm not sure of the sentiment, there's no marks on the stamps.

I printed some Gina K digital designer paper called Bug Me Anytime - it just fit with this image. I also colored the prima flower on the bottom with copics to tie in the image and card base before adding a rhinestone brad to the center. The mat on the image panel was punched w/an EK border punch on the bottom before popping it up on dimensionals.

I'm LOVING learning more about coloring with these Copics ... as my stash grows larger, I realize just how many Copics I DON'T have, yet need! Suzanne is a phenomenal teacher. I can't wait to get to the next level. I think if a certification class ever DOES come around to my area, by the time she's done teaching me, I might be able to teach the class (NOT! lol)

Anyway ... keep an eye out on my blog for the Memorial Day 2010 Card Challenge for the Troops, sponsored by the Wish RAK group over on Splitcoaststampers. We've got 12 different challenges. This time it will be slightly different. All challenges will be put up at the same time and you'll have a few days to get the cards done. Come on over and have fun - it's for a great cause - the Troops certainly appreciate all the blank cards we send over to them so they can send notes home to family and friends. I'm one of the cheerleaders this time around and have been making lots of fun cards for the challenge, alas, I cannot post any of them until May 28th, so keep a look out.

Have a great day - and thanks for stopping by !
