Color Me Creative challenge

This was a tough one ... Color Me Creative has put forth the challenge to use our favorite Copic skill/technique this month.  I love to feather, air brush, experiment with hair colors, well, just about everything.  One of my new favorites tho is to color with my Copics onto Kraft.  I like using the softer colors here because they blend so well - trick is you have to have a much lighter touch than with the Cryogen or X-press blend it papers.

I chose this digital image from Tiffany Doodles entitled 'Pear Blossom' and printed it onto kraft before coloring with Copics.   My papers were Stamping Up (cherry cobbler and daffodile) as well as Basic Grey (Hello Lucious paper pak).  I used the cherry for a flourish and a border punch for the daffodil strip which I tied a red ribbon around.  Finished off with a few white gel pen flicks and some distressed red Stickles.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping in.
