Copic Color Challenge #20

This week's color challenge over on the Copic Colour Challenge blog is using these colors: I love these colors together. Once I saw these colors, I knew I was going to use one of my Frida Kahlo images. Plus, I had just gotten some new Lasting Impressions paper at Stamping Details in Poway, so it was a project made to happen. The CCC says that you should use the colors listed if you have them, but if not, then use a color close to what you have that works. You can also add colors to the image, too. I did not have YR68, so I used YR16 Apricot. The other colors I used were:

E51 Milky White

E31 Brick Beige

YG67 Moss

G85 Verdigris

R14 Light Rouge

C7 Cool Gray No. 7

  • The leaves were another stamp I used. I used my chalk inks to ink the paper then stamp the image in a darker chalk ink color, and then I used clear embossing powder over the images and cut them out. The green leaves don't match the cardstock very well in this photograph, but they do match in real life. I hate it when that happens.

It was fun doing this challenge. If you participate in the Copic Colour Challenge, drop me a line so I can go check out your card. Have fun!
