Basic Grey Challenge 1 & Copics

- - 6 Comments

Well i finally managed to make a Card (first time in months due to work load) might not be anything special to me it is/was due to my mojo leaving the building!
( I'm not sure it will ever come back, Last time i actually placed anything i made on this blog was the 1st of June!!! but i have dabbled about since then and made the odd thing - Which i will get a couple on tomorrow).

But also i got some copics some time ago only 6 in flesh colours as I'm always annoyed at how my flesh/faces turn out even with the watercolours, and pencils i have.

So Yesterday evening i finally managed to have a play and I'm pretty pleased with the "flesh" results considering it was my first time of using them.

So much so that i loved using them my partner has treated me to 60 of them!!! ( i decided to hand pick my colours rather than go for the packs, and find i don't have the colours i will need.) and best thing is i managed to source some in the UK for £1.75( excluding Vat £1.44 each ) bargain or what!!!
They are only the ciao ones, i have got 1 of the normal, and 1 sketch and a couple of the ciaos an to be honest i prefer the ciaos, the normal one i couldn't get to blend as well, and the sketch to me is no different to the ciaos apart from the price.

So anyway's after that big ramble! like you wanted to know all that?

I'm very excited to be able to take part in the first challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges,
Martine has done a super job setting this blog up ,
so much so I'm all set up and sponsoring them already.

well for there first challenge: Buttons
The rules are simple, your work must include at least 1 piece of Basic Grey.
and also the only other important rule your need to know is,
when there is prizes on the blog the work must be NEW made for Basic Grey Challenges,
and not made to combine challenges.
For my Card i have used 3 Basic Grey INFUSE buttons.



Above is a Detailed Picture of the little Sol coloured in and i hope you can see the "flesh" work that i have done with the Copics.


Recipe i have used,
Stamps: Papirloftet Christmas Sol laying down
Ink/Colour: Copic Markers, Whispers Strokes
Paper: DCVW Christmas Wishes Paper Stack 8x8
Cardstock: White Linen Papermill, Brazill, Other Card from Stash
Ribbon: From Stash (unknown)
Accessories: Buttons Basic Grey Infuse, Anitas Clear Gloss for dots in the Stars

gorgeous card donna, glad you could take part in the challenge, and so happy for you that you managed to do some crafting :), i know what you mean about not being able to get the right skin tone and look you want with watercolors etc, but i recently bought some letraset promarkers (which are like copics) and fell in love with them, they make coloring sooo much easier, plus they give a real professional Finnish :)
