Joy......


Hello again for another Fabulous Friday Challenge at the PCP group i{heart}copics!!!  This week we have a color challenge for you all.  Now if you do not have the exact copic colors you can always use something close to the colors.  We do not expect you to run out and buy them but you can order at a great price from i{heart}papers.  The three colors for this weeks challenge are - B91 (Pale Grayish Blue) BG15 (Aqua) and Y21(Buttercup Yellow)


I wanted to try something a bit different on this project so I did a newspaper color wash that I found on a tutorial on my friend Randi's blog and you can find right HERE. You take your paper and saturate it with W0 - W3 before you color with your copics.  A very light touch is used.  I love the way it gives a watercolor effect with copics. 
The colors I used on this project were: BG11, BG15, B91, Y21, Y26, E33, E00, E02, E33, E25, W1, W3.
The stamp is from Stampin' Up. I do not know the name of the set.  I cut the frame with my sizzix and added some pearls and stickles.  A flower from Prima and the matching sentiment.  One last little embellishment added was a tiny Hero Arts butterfly. I am kinda diggin them right now.


After waking up to snow this morning this card kinda took me back to my favorite place in the world. No other place I would rather be, on the beach under the sun, in front of the ocean kissing the sand and I felt a bit better!!! If only!!!!

I hope you all join us for the challenge or if you have any questions or just want to chat you can always find someone at PCP i{heart}copics.

  3. Gorgeous Kym!!! I love what you did with this technique!! Incredible job with the shading on their clothes. Such a great image to use it on, too! I just love all the blues!

    For my FBW card, I used a light wash of the Colorless Blender instead of a wash of grey. And, then I only used B000 and B00. Thanks for the shoutout! Much appreciated!!

  19. Kym, what a great technique! Indeed, it looks like water colors -- Copics...I am still learning with my Copics, so this was great to know. I love those blues and the image is so nice. The beach is the only place to be - very tranquil and serene, so I know what you mean. Thanks for playing along with us at Tellen's Place! :-)
