Fun with Copics

This first card is a digital image from The Stamping Boutique - released for a blog hop for Bella ... see previous posts for details, the blog hop is actually over now. I love the vintage nature of the image. The image was colored with Copics and then I added some glossy accents to the corners and the hanging lollipop. Mats are SU's dusty durango and chocolate chip. I added some trim below the image using a Martha Stewart scalloped eyelet punch on both layers.

This next card was made using a digital image from Tiffany Doodles. I wanted a big ice cream, so enlarged it to take up most of the space. I colored the image with Copics then added some Shimmerz to the pink. Tried to get it to show in the photo, but this is as good as it gets, as the sun is going down.

I also followed the color challenge for the Copic Musketeers (see blinkie on the left side) - to use pink, black, bright blue and bright green - Check! I took a piece of SU dp and ran it through the Argyle cuttlebug embossing folder then sponged around to bring out the dimension.
Finished off by adding some black stickles to the image's corners.

This last one was made using one of The Stamping Boutique's Back To School images - the apple, which was colored with Copics. This is also a challenge - sketch this time - for the Copic Musketeers. I matted the white on real red cardstock then ran both through the Sizzix Dots & Circles folder before sponging with some real red. The double arc is red Stickles. I finished off with an organdy polka dot blue ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by !
