New Challenges for you!

Hello Friends
I have fallen in love with coloring again!! I sat on the fence about investing in Copic markers way too long last year! The ability to layer colors, blend perfectly and the range of colors available have made them #1 in my book.
To help me with some inspiration I've been following the Copic Colour Challenge Blog. Great inspiration and wonderful samples posted by their DT! I can't wait until they post their challenges on Wednesday!! To help tide me over... and hopefully a few other Copic addicts out there... I'm going to post weekend Copic challenges right here on Artful Sentiments by Kimm BT.
I will give you a list of 3 specific colors and one color family. You choose any or all of those specific colors and one from the color family for your artwork. Don't worry if you do not have the exact color... work with what you have. Post the link to share your artwork in the Mister Linky box.

Your first selections are: B24-Sky, G99-Olive, Y21-Buttercup Yellow
And any selection from the EARTH tones family.
This should give you a good range to work with.

On the Shore card colors used: E53, W3, YR23, BG000, BG10, B24, YG23, YG17, G99, R29, R59, BV000
Stamp Credits- Stampin' UP! The side panel technique is Bandana by Technique Junkies.
Don't forget to share your artwork using Mister Linky! Have Fun!!

Gorgeous Kimm! Love this!!! Have you tried airbrushing with the Copics yet? It is FABULOUS!!!

Kimm said...

I want an airbrush system really BAD!! Its on my wish list for Mother's Day:)

Wow, Kimm! You are a coloring fool these days! How did you start with Copics? There are so many colors and they're so pricey that I'm only accumulating them piecemeal. Did you start with a set? I only have black and pale gray (for shadowing). You've really taken off!

Thanks Kim! I'm hitting sales... if I buy online I try to get the cheap shipping deals (saves per marker) and my LSS has a sales incentive card. I have not purchased as many stamps... funds have been redirected to markers for now:) Loving every minute of it!!

I know how much you love to color. You've encouraged me to start getting into the Copics more! Keep the inspiration coming, Kimm!
