I dedicate this card to.....

...Emily!

Consider Hoping my little nudge at keeping the Jenny Craig momentum going! YOU GO GIRL! I think I'll pop it in the mail to her with some encouraging words.


My two fav things to do with copics are hair and fluffy stuff like this towel. Lots of colours and lots of dots is all it takes to get that cushy cosy look. These are the colours I used:

E0000, 000, 00, 11, R20
E21, 25, 27, 29 (hair)
BG0000, 000, 10, 11, 32, 72, 75 (towel)
but after I did that and it was all mounted up I threw in some yellow greens
CO, T3 (for some shading on the scale)

I used Seashell Pink and Peach Beige to shade around the image and Sandbar Brown and Chocolate for the ground.

My back is feeling much better, it is now tolerably uncomfortable but at least I was able to colour yesterday and boy did that feel good! I even got my card done for Bellarific Friday, and I must admit, it is pretty darn cute! It's a nice easy sketch with lots of possibility and you still have plenty of time to get in the game.

Thanks for stopping by...catch ya later!
