Inky Impressions treble combo

I have just discovered these adorable images - oh wow, how cute!! I just love Lili, those eyes!!! So I've managed to combine three challenges with this card: I followed the sketch on Simon Says Stamp challenge, used pink green and yellow for Papertake Weekly challenge, and think this card fits in with the Summer theme on Stampavie & More.

I broke down and got some Copics last week - oh boy the panic is unreal!! I coloured this image with the usual distress inks and H2O's (cos I'm such a scaredy cat) then used the copics over and wow, what a difference they make - talk about adding depth and dimension. Now I've just got to get brave enough (and more colours lol) to attempted to colour a whole image with copics only. Think that's still a long way away.
birthday-1
I received some of the new Spellbinders Pendants borderabilities in my DT kit from Create4Fun last week, so had to use one of them on my card - love them!!  I used the other border in the side for the inside but can't get a decent photo of it sadly (done my head in big time!)

Recipe:
Stamps: Inky Impressions Lili's birthday cake from Create4Fun and sentiment from CleverCut (I think)
Papers: DCWV Nana's Nursery
Tools:  McGill Botanical Pine punch, Spellbinders Borderabilities Renaissance Hearts, Circle Nestabilities, medium retro flower punch
Embellies: Fine organza ribbon from Create4Fun (can't see it on the web), flat backed crystals, Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts



Thanks for stopping by,

  29. Go on bev be a devil lol! I like copics over H2O's as well but jump right in, stamp out a sheet of images just to play with and look up "copic tutorial" on google though looking at that pic I dont think you'll actually need it....!

    I was also a distress ink fan for colouring but I crossed the bridge a couple of months back and havent looked back since :D

  32. LOL, Bev....I've had my Copics for about 2 years & still panic every time I decide to color an image with them. I think images look best when more than one coloring medium is used anyway.....so use what your comfortable with!! Either way your coloring is fantastic!!

  55. What a lovely card and such a sweet girl, as you rightly say: the eyes have it! Interested to see how you go on with the Copics, wondering how many you have to start with, but betting that at least you have pink, pink and pink! they certainly add a nice dimension . . won't be long before you're an expert and then teaching us all ;o) Nettie xx

  71. Bev, I have followed your blog for sometime and I though with your coloring being so perfect and beautiful that you were already using copics. I went back through some of your post and notice you really don't mention how you color your images. I think I read one post where you stated you used H2O's and a Marvy pen. What exactly have you been using to color your beautiful cards? I can't image them bing any more gorgeous than they already are.
    I love your work!How about doing a tutorial on coloring. Your work is amazing. Thank YOU for sharing.
    ((Hugs))
