Copic Colour Challenge 21

We are having an art mingle on our yahoogroup, England Stampers, and it requires using our alcohol markers to color images. I had been sort of stuttering and stumbling with this project . . . I had something in mind, and it was just not gelling. So I finally tossed that idea aside -- along with all the scraps of paper and images -- and started over.

Ahhhhhh . . . I feel much better now. I reached for my trusty Elzybells Art Stamps, which work wonderfully with alcohol markers.

Then, I popped over to the Copic Colour Challenge to see what colors they were suggesting this week. I then discovered that Elzybells is the sponsor of the Week 21 Copic Color Challenge!

Here are the recommended colors.
Yes, I really had ALL of them, and used them in my artwork. The Smoky Blue is one of my favorite Copic blue shades, and I use it all the time.

In addition to the Elzybells Art Stamp, I also used Creative Imaginations gold embossed tea party paper, Prima flowers, and Stampin' Up ribbon.

I'll mail the cards to the mingle recipients tomorrow, and I'm so much happier with the results!
